You have a good point. However the functions Row::parent(), Row::size(),
Row::operator bool(), Row::operator() and Row::lookup_by_name() are
already now dependent on the parent Result object - it gives undefined
behavour to use these functions after the destruction of the Result.
The only useful member function left which now can be used without the
parent is Row::raw_data().
If the lifetime of a Row object really is expected to be able to extend
the lifetime of the parent Result object, I would suggest a rewrite to
remove the current dependencies.
