In the case of the FK triggers, it's intentional (and maybe even
documented) that users should be able to place their own triggers before
or after the FK triggers.  Is there a good reason why partitioning
triggers should be different?  If there is, maybe the feature shouldn't
be implemented via triggers in the first place.
