Wrong Martin. Find all that are within 1000 with a left join using an
indexed search and then throw out those that don't have matches.
If it has no neighbor within 1000 feet then all its neighbors must be
more than 1000 feet away.

Since you're trying to find all As which are *further* than a given
distance from Bs, I don't think there is any "efficient" way.
I think you pretty much have to do a self-join with a where condition
like "where distance(geomA, geomB) > 1000". Oh, and I guess you'll need
a filter condition to compare only As and Bs.
