The record class represents a record in a DB, not a collection. All
load* methods in it are expecting that you would clever enough and use
unique groups of columns to load things, otherwise these methods don't
guaranty that you'll get always the same result using the same
arguments, for example you can shoot in your own leg by using
load_by_cols with "x = y" when x column is not unique. LIKE operator
allows multiple matches in a column it's applied to which makes
situation worser, that's why it's not implemented.

To do the right thing you have to use a collection with limit and most
probably order_by even if you need only a first record from a set that
matches your conditions.
