Unless you're using EXECUTE in your pl/pgsql, the queries in your
pl/pgsql function are already getting prepared on the first call of the
function for a given backend connection.. If you're using EXECUTE in
pl/gpsql then your problem might be planning time. Moving that to C
isn't going to change things as much as you might hope if you still have
to plan the query every time you call it..

That's not really relevant.. Is it called alot from the same
backend/database connection? If so, and if you're using regular SELECT
statements and the like (not EXECUTE), then they're getting prepared the
first time they're used and that is kept across transactions.
