Should the error message change somehow to reflect that partitioned
tables are included?  Is complete transparency of partitioned tables
the goal, and reasonable in this context?

Also, is there a good reason apart from tuits not to expand
TABLESAMPLE to the rest of our SQL-visible relation structures?  I'm
guessing this could have something to do with the volatility they
might have, whether in views that call volatile functions or in
foreign tables that might not make the right guarantees...
