Unfortunately I don't know enough about PostgreSQL, but from responses 
I've been reading I've
come to that conclusion.

I didn't think about storing query plan anywhere on the disk, rather 
keep them in memory pool.
It would be great if we had an option to use prepare statement for 
stored procedure so it
would prepare it self the first time it's called and remained prepared 
until server shutdown or
memory pool overflow.

This would solve problems with prepare which is per session, so for 
prepared function to be
optimal one must use same connection.
