Way to standardize results from \Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Manager?

I'm working on an API, where consumers of the API are allowed to adjust which fields they would like returned in the response. I'm finding that \Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Manager::executeQuery() will return something different, depending on the queried fields. Is there any way to set \Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Manager::executeQuery() so that it always returns the same format for a response?

Reproducible Test

<?php
class Role extends \Phalcon\Mvc\Model
{
    /**
     * @var integer
     */
    public $id;

    /**
     * @var string
     */
    public $name;

    /**
     * Set the table
     */
    public function initialize()
    {
        $this->setSource('roles');
    }
}

class User extends \Phalcon\Mvc\Model
{
    /**
     * @var integer
     */
    public $id;

    /**
     * @var integer
     */
    public $roleId;

    /**
     * @var string
     */
    public $email;

    /**
     * Set the table
     */
    public function initialize()
    {
        $this->setSource('users');
    }
}

$di = new Phalcon\DI\FactoryDefault();

$di->setShared('db', function () {
    return new \Phalcon\Db\Adapter\PDO\Mysql(array(
        'host' => '127.0.0.1',

});

$di->setShared('modelsManager', function() {
    return new \Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Manager();
});

/* Setup a sample DB schema */

    array(1, 1, '[email protected]'),

    'users',
    array(3, 2, '[email protected]'),

Observed Results

Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Resultset\Complex
[
    {
        "user": {
            "id": "1",
            "roleId": "1",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        },
        "role": {
            "id": "1",
            "name": "Regular User"
        }
    },
    {
        "user": {
            "id": "2",
            "roleId": "1",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        },
        "role": {
            "id": "1",
            "name": "Regular User"
        }
    },
    {
        "user": {
            "id": "3",
            "roleId": "2",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        },
        "role": {
            "id": "2",
            "name": "Admin"
        }
    }
]

I would like everything returned in the same format as above. Fields belonging to "user" are nested in "user" and fields belonging to "role" are nested in "role".

Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Resultset\Complex
[
    {
        "user": {
            "id": "1",
            "roleId": "1",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        },
        "id": "1",
        "name": "Regular User"
    },
    {
        "user": {
            "id": "2",
            "roleId": "1",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        },
        "id": "1",
        "name": "Regular User"
    },
    {
        "user": {
            "id": "3",
            "roleId": "2",
            "email": "[email protected]"
        },
        "id": "2",
        "name": "Admin"
    }
]

Above, I would like "id" and "name" to be nested in a "role" .

Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Resultset\Simple
[
    {
        "id": "1",
        "email": "[email protected]",
        "name": "Regular User"
    },
    {
        "id": "1",
        "email": "[email protected]",
        "name": "Regular User"
    },
    {
        "id": "2",
        "email": "[email protected]",
        "name": "Admin"
    }
]

Above, I would like "id" and "name" nested in "role". I would also like "id" and "email" nested in "user". Note that I selected two id's in the query but one overrode the other.

You have to name second id another, example userId or roleId or something like this. Also is you select full objects then resultset is returned as complex, if you select only columns, then as simple.

Also nesting only works when you selecting full objects.
