METHOD Name: POP::Lazy_object_hash::PIDS Desc: Returns a hash of keys to pids for every object in the hash, either by pulling the pid out of the restored object, or by simply returning that value of the hash if the object hasn't been restored yet.

METHOD Name: POP::Lazy_object_hash::STORE Desc: Called whenever an element in the hash is set; Tells our parent to update persistence
