 When using the 'fields' argument in the `get_terms()` function, there are
 several useful options that can be specified to get the exact return
 values needed (in addition to complete term objects it is possible to get
 `ids`, `id=>parent`, `names`, `count`, `id=>name` and `id=>slug`).

 A similar functionality exists for post queries (like in `get_posts()`),
 however it doesn't provide the same value like its term-related equivalent
 (since in addition to complete post objects, it is only possible to
 request `ids` or `id=>parent`). The most important thing I am missing is
 something like `id=>title`, which would be especially useful for custom
 dropdowns or listings, but there might be other options that could be
 supported as well.

 I will gladly write a patch for this issue after I have received some
