Instead of cloning and retaining the original values of the current
post as well as wp_query it might be better to simply create a local
instance of wp_query and not overwrite the global instance.
This would require directly accessing wp_query's methods from your
local instance and not using the template tags, etc. that wordpress
provides, but might be better in terms of not missing any globals that
wp-includes/query.php might be helpful to see what I mean.
