[wp-hackers] Any way to bypass $wp->query_posts()?

Hi all: 

I hope what I'm about to ask isn't viewed as heresy, but I've been building a CustomUrls plugin and am finding that AFAICT WordPress always runs a query for posts no matter if its needed or not, i.e. here is $wp->main() : 

function main($query_args = '') { 
do_action_ref_array('wp', array(&$this)); 

I would like to be able to disable $wp->query_posts() in cases where I want to run a custom query. Is there a way to do this that I'm just not seeing, or if not is there a reason why it wouldn't make sense to allow bypassing or $wp->query_posts() somehow (and $wp->handle_404() too, for that matter)?
