Hi Amit & Amit,

Just a thought: If I understand correctly this new array of tuple
conversion maps is the same as mtstate->mt_transition_tupconv_maps in
my patch transition-tuples-from-child-tables-v11.patch (hopefully soon
to be committed to close a PG10 open item).  In my patch I bounce
transition tuples from child relations up to the named relation's
triggers, and in this patch you bounce child tuples up to the named
relation for rerouting, so the conversion requirement is the same.
Perhaps we could consider refactoring to build a common struct member
on demand for the row movement patch at some point in the future if it
makes the code cleaner.
