I don't think so. I believe (though I can very well be wrong), the issue
is not the size of the data but the number of statements that has to be

Well, in this case, you can use PG array types. That is, map 
std::vector<double> to DOUBLE PRECISION[], then use it as an element
of odb::vector<> (so each row will only be updated if some of its
elements have changed). For more information on how to map PG array
types, see "Extended Database to C++ Type Mapping in ODB":


Plus, the pgsql/custom test in the odb-tests package has a working
mapping for INTEGER[].

Also, would appreciate it if you let us whether this helps with your
performance issue.
