Perhaps a reasonable compromise could work like this: at the first point

Doing this on transaction-level looks pretty nice; The original code choose the random element on backend startup (or every time you call SET).

Btw. i saw you've removed the random selection implemented by MyProcId % num_temp_tablespaces. I liked this idea, because PID should be pretty random on many OS?
