if i write code like this:
qs = MyModel.objects.filter(dt__lte=datetime.datetime.now)
and execute it at time A, then save
later, at time B, i call
for obj in qs to get the object list. as the documentation says, database query is executed at time B. however, it seems that the value of
dt__lte was fetched at time A (ie.
datetime.datetime.now was evaluated at time A), and i think
datetime.datetime.now should be evaluated at time B (if i wrote
qs = MyModel.objects.filter(dt__lte=datetime.datetime.now())
, it should be evaluated at time A). it seems to go against "QuerySets are lazy", doesn't it?
