The changes look good to me. Now, ExecConstraint() has three blocks
which are almost similar, differing only in the constraints checked
and the error message. It was manageable without partitioning and may
be it's still manageable, but it's certainly being pushed to the
limits. May be we should refactor error reporting code into a separate
function and call it in those three places.
