The skip_create_refresh plugin skips the refresh after saving a new model object. Sequel does the refresh by default to make sure all columns are populated, which is necessary so that database defaults work correctly.
This plugin is mostly for performance reasons where you want to save the cost of select statement after the insert, but it could also help cases where records are not immediately available for selection after insertion.
Note that Sequel by default does not attempt to refresh records when updating existing model objects, only when inserting new model objects.
