I must admit that I'm with you on this, in fact I'd like to be able to 
do $myquery->the_title(); etc.

I had started with previous projects using get_posts but wasn't 
comfortable with having to use global $post; to get it to work - and 
then seeing the list of globals in function load_template() I was 
concerned about making sure there weren't other side-effects.

So I switched over to WP_Query after looking at the codex on loops as I 
had hoped that wp_reset_query() would have put everything back to its 
original state. But it doesn't seem to do that for me - have you had a 
similar issue or is there something else I should be doing?
