It was discussed at some length recently, check the list archives. IIRC 
the consensus was to fix the server - essentially, add a mode where the 
driver can tell the server "please replan this statement every time you 
get new parameters", which would allow all the normal planner 
optimizations (constant folding, etc) to be made since it does not need 
to produce a general-purpose plan for all possible parameter values.
