However we could add a new property here called "idGetter" that would take the name of a method.
During Proxy Generation then this method is created with magic functionality that:

What about an @IdGetter annotation. A function instrumented like this would not trigger the lazy load within the proxy.
would then result in the proxy implementation
After reading the original post I realized that it proposed nearly the same thing. Nevertheless I'll leave it here for clarity. I still think that an annotation on a function would be better, than an annotation which gets the function name as a parameter.
