Obviously, it would be nice if the overhead were even lower, but it's
clearly a vast improvement over what we have today.

I think you should definitely try to get that additional speedup when
you can. It doesn't seem like a lot when you think of how much is
already being saved, but a healthy number of users are going to
compare it to the performance on an unpartitioned table rather than to
our historical performance. 127/98.1 = 1.29, but 113.9/98.1 = 1.16
-- and obviously a 16% overhead from partitioning is way better than a
29% overhead, even if the old overhead was a million percent.
