There's really no additional operations required:

INSERT INTO t2 VALUES (currval('t1_id_seq'), ...);

You need a separate SELECT if you want to use the generated sequence
value outside the database, although the INSERT ... RETURNING extension
will avoid that (there's a patch implementing this, although it is not
yet in CVS).
