Maybe this discussion is easier if we differentiate "list tables" (\dt,
or \d without a pattern) from "describe table" (\d with a name pattern).
It seems to me that the "describe" command should list partitions --
perhaps only when the + flag is given. However, the "list tables"
command \dt should definitely IMO not list partitions. Maybe \dt should
have some flag indicating whether each table is partitioned.
