You would query the parent (no union). Do you need order by's ?
Without order by it is currently no problem.

Do we push the limit down to the separate tables when we have an
index for the order by (that could be a TODO item)?
(You need a max of "limit" rows per child in the outer order) 

Or we would need to implement an efficient index merge node
for order by queries on parent (and union all's) with low limits
and an appropriate index.

Selecting the oldest x rows from a time partitioned table is a frequent
we need to work around here too (Informix db).
