See the "Subquery Expressions" and "Row and Array Comparisons"
sections in the PostgreSQL documentation:
If I understand you correctly, this should work:
SELECT ARRAY(SELECT name FROM foo WHERE id = ANY(ARRAY[1,2,3]));
A test I just ran showed "id = ANY(ARRAY[1,2,3])" doing a sequential
scan whereas "id IN (1,2,3)" did an index scan, so you might want to
use the latter if possible.
