The current methods I can find in the code to convert sprintf the double to a buffer and then invoke the numeric_in function on them.  I've profile my stuff and I'm spending (wasting) all my time in that conversion.  Is there a more efficient method of converting a double into a postgres numeric value?

float8_numeric() ? Although it uses sprintf too, by the look of it.
