Just to expand on what Martin said; if you can generate a set of EXECUTE
commands, you can certainly generate a COPY command to insert the same
data.  The advantage is a large drop in parse time for inserting larger
numbers of rows.  As you're saying you want to insert 500 rows, I'd
suggest at least trying to get COPY working.
