Using a single query string with multiple values, perhaps, but after
that comes into consideration query string limit particularly for
large text values... The query used for the insertion is a prepared
statement since writable queries are supported in 9.3, which makes the
code quite simple actually.

Not that I know of. I am adding Fujita-san in the loop here, he is
quite involved with postgres_fdw these days so perhaps he has some
input to offer.
