`include` certain fields for BatchJob

Is there a way to specify which fields should be included in a BatchJobBatch, similar to how one can include fields on a MapReduce job?

the “include” concept does not apply to a batch job since it does not operate directly on an entity type.

you define the batches and their inputs manually in the “doStart” method and therefore can include or exclude any fields or information you need in your “processBatch” function.
