Looks like from the test cases you posted, you're not actually
benchmarking any *queries*, you're comparing the speeds of the
procedural languages. And yes, PL/pgSQL is known to be a farily slow

If you want fair benchmark results, you should instead concentrate on
what databases are supposed to do: store and retrieve data; finding
the most optimal way to execute complicated SQL queries. In most
setups, that's where the majority of database processor time is spent,
not procedure code.
