hmm, I think I was wrong about that now. I had been looking over the
regression test diffs after having made tenk1 a partitioned table with
a single partition containing all the rows, but it looks like I read
the diff backwards. The planner actually parallelized the Append
version, not the non-Append version, like I had previously thought.
