That doesn't actually fix the planning-time issue at all. Either the
planner considers each partition individually to create a custom plan
for it, or it doesn't.
The "push into executor" idea I was alluding to is that we might invent
plan constructs like a ModifyTable node that applies to a whole
inheritance^H^H^Hpartitioning tree and leaves the tuple routing to be
done at runtime. You're not going to get a plan structure like that
if the planner is building a separate plan subtree for each partition.
