[wp-hackers] can't make sense out of: get_permalink(), $id->filter & 'sample' filter

I'm currently trying to call all posts in one Query and then attach the
author object as well as the permalink to the post object. Sadly
get_permalink(); produced one additional DB query per call. I could manage
the problem as I found out that a) the Codex and b) the docBlock for
get_permalink() was wrong: You can pass the whole post object into the
function. This allows bypassing the following lines  - if you attach
$post->filter = 'sample' to your post object before you drop it into
Now I question: What for do I need $id->filter (which is in this case
$post->filter), which isn't attached to a post object in a "normal" query.?
And why can't I bypass the additional call to get_post(); otherwise? Under
normal circumstances (or simply in a lot of cases) get_permalink(); is
called inside a loop, so I wouldn't need to get post object again.
Thanks for your time.
