To avoid EXECUTE error like "ERROR:  prepared statement ... does not exist",
pgpool doesn't load-balance "PREPARE/EXECUTE/DEALLOCATE".

- The current feature of load balance:

If you set "disable_load_balance_on_write = transaction" (default),
when a write query is issued inside an explicit truncation, 
subsequent queries will be sent to Primary only until the end
of this transaction in order to avoid the replication delay.

If pgpool load balances "PREPARE/EXECUTE/DEALLOCATE",
after issuing a WRITE query, "EXECUTE" will be sent to Primary
and it can cause "ERROR:  prepared statement ... does not exist".

  PREPARE test AS SELECT 1;     -- Load balanced to standby
  EXECUTE test;                 -- Load balanced to standby
  UPDATE ...                    -- WRITE query to primary
  EXECUTE test;                 -- Don't be load balanced because a WRITE query was issued.
                                   "ERROR:  prepared statement test does not exist"

To load balance "PREPARE/EXECUTE/DEALLOCATE" and avoid an error,
pgpool needs to run "PREPARE" again on Primary after issuing a WRITE query.
However, currently pgpool doesn't have such a feature.

It may be considered in future development.
