Well, I would at least recommend that you change the "WHERE
bayes_token_tmp NOT IN (SELECT token FROM bayes_token)"
with a

You might try experimenting with the differences, but on my system the
NOT IN has to do a full sequential scan on bayes_token and load all
entries into a list, while NOT EXISTS can do effectively a nested loop.

The nested loop requires that there is an index on bayes_token(token),
but I'm pretty sure there is anyway.

Again, in my testing, it was a difference of 4200ms versus 180ms. (800k
rows in my big table, 2k in the temp one)
