This is basically the same problem as before; the partitionwise case
is doing the hash joins with the sides flipped from the optimal
strategy.  I bet that's a bug in the code rather than a problem with
the concept.

Yes, this is definitely going to use significant additional planning
time and memory.  There are several possible strategies for improving
that situation, but I think we need to get the basics in place first.
That's why the proposal is now to have this turned off by default.
People joining really big tables that happen to be equipartitioned are
likely to want to turn it on, though, even before those optimizations
are done.
