I don't really see why you think that this path is going to lead to
better performance than where you were before.  Manipulation of the
temp table is never going to be free, and IN (sub-select) is always
inherently not fast, and NOT IN (sub-select) is always inherently
awful.  Throwing a pile of simple queries at the problem is not
necessarily the wrong way ... especially when you are doing it in
plpgsql, because you've already eliminated the overhead of network
round trips and repeated planning of the queries.
