Apologies. I misread on my phone and though it was within the loop.

That is a big difference. Are you porting a lot of code from PL/SQL,
and therefore evaluating the performance difference of running this
code? Or is this just a general test where you wish to assess the
performance difference?

PL/pgSQL could definitely use some loving, as far as optimization
goes, but my feeling is that it hasn't happened because there are
other suitable backends that give the necessary flexibility for the
different use cases.
