As a note for non-JDBC users, the JDBC driver's batch interface allows 
executing multiple statements in a single network roundtrip.  This is 
something you can't get in libpq, so beware of this for comparison's sake.

Despite the size of the batch passed to the JDBC driver, the driver breaks 
it up into internal sub-batch sizes of 256 to send to the server.  It does 
this to avoid network deadlocks from sending too much data to the server 
without reading any in return.  If the driver was written differently it 
could handle this better and send the full batch size, but at the moment 
that's not possible and we're hoping the gains beyond this size aren't too
