"""Sub-query stuff, for things we would otherwise let Eve embed (but don't want to).
Uses app.cache.memoize() to cache the results. However, since this decorator needs
to run in Flask Application context, it is manually applied in setup_app().

Only returns the public fields, so the return value is the same
for authenticated & non-authenticated users, which is why we're
allowed to cache it globally.
Returns an empty dict when the user cannot be found.
