Hmm, a quick experiment shows that it won't allow a partitioned table
to be used as a user catalog table, although I'm not sure if that's
intentional. If it is, it doesn't appear to be documented.

I found another RLS-related omission -- RemoveRoleFromObjectPolicy()
doesn't work for partitioned tables, so DROP OWNED BY <role> will fail
if there are any partitioned tables with RLS.

I also found another couple of omissions in PL/pgSQL --
plpgsql_parse_cwordtype() and build_row_from_class(), so for example
%rowtype doesn't work for partitioned tables.

That's it for my quick once-over the code-base, but I'm not confident
that will have caught everything.
