I imagined this would have had a check for volatile functions and some
user-friendly error message to say partition bounds must be immutable,
but instead, it does:

postgres=# create table d_p1 partition of d for values in (Random());
ERROR:  specified value cannot be cast to type double precision for column "d"
LINE 1: create table d_p1 partition of d for values in (Random());
DETAIL:  The cast requires a non-immutable conversion.
HINT:  Try putting the literal value in single quotes.

For inspiration, maybe you could follow the lead of CREATE INDEX:

postgres=# create index on d ((random()));
ERROR:  functions in index expression must be marked IMMUTABLE
