First, it's not a particular problem with pgpool. As far as I know any
connection pool solution has exactly the same problem. Second, it's
easy to fix if PostgreSQL provides a functionarity such as:"drop all
temporary tables if any". I think we should implement it if we agree
that connection pooling should be implemented outside the PostgreSQL
engine itself. I think cores agree with this.
