[Nitro] Idea for improving performance

Hello there,

I think that Og should only write back to the database fields that have 
changed. Every object could keep an array containing the state of each 
field (modified, or not) and the setter methods could modify the array. 
It could also be implemented by having the array store the modified 
properties, pushing the properties into the array when they are 
modified. You could then use eval to completely remove the logic that 
does this from the setter method causing minimal overhead.

This is a feature I expect would improve performance noticably. This is 
just two ideas on how it could be done... what do you think?
