Re: subquery vs. join?

Hector Vass gave one possibly helpful approach: use a temporary table to use one index and get the initial filtering of the big data set, then use that temporary table to complete the query. I've seen very large performance gains from this approach. In addition to the use of the index, the filtered table subset is more likely to fit in cache.
