I pushed this now, with fixes for the last few comments there were.

Hah.  That was referring to variables "myself" and "referenced".  I
changed the variable name to "parentConstr".

Yeah, I think it was patently wrong.  I changed it so that connoinherit
becomes true in this case.

After looking at it for a few minutes I determined that adding this
feature requires some more work: you need to iterate on all partitions,
obtain the corresponding index, cons up a few fake parse nodes, then
recurse to create the PK in the children.  I think this should be doable
with a couple dozen lines of code, but it's a refinement that can be
added on top.  Care to submit a patch?  In the meantime, I added an
ereport(ERROR) to avoid leaving the system in an inconsistent state
(that probably would not even be reproduced correctly by pg_dump).
