Actually, it is more intended to put all the entries in a "one to many" 
table in a single column, as:

create table classic_one_to_many
    leftside    integer,
    rightside    integer

create table fast_lookup as select leftside, 
int_array_aggregate(rightside) from classic_one_to_many group by leftside;
