--use-partitioned-table [partition-name, ...] # if names are omitted it
defaults to all partitioned tables
I don't know that we need to use "root" in the argument name to communicate
"the top-most if partitioned tables are nested". We have the docs to
describe exactly what it does. "Partitioned Table" is what we are calling
the main routing table in the docs. "Use" seems adequate.
FWIW my first thought was "--insert-via-partition-root" and I didn't mind
that "COPY" commands would be affected implicitly.
