Here's a new version. Many of the old complaints have been fixed;
particularly, the handling of partitioned tables is now much cleaner and
straightforward. Amit Langote helped considerably in getting this part
to shape -- thanks for that. Amit also helped correct the EvalPlanQual
behavior, which wasn't quite up to snuff.
There are a few things that can still be improved here. For one, I need
to clean up the interactions with table AM (and thus heapam.c etc).
Secondarily, and I'm now not sure that I really want to do it, is change
the representation for executor: instead of creating a fake join between
target and source, perhaps we should have just source, and give
optimizer a separate query to fetch tuples from target.
What I did do is change how the target table is represented from parse
analysis to executor. For example, in the original code, there were two
RTEs that represented the target table; that is gone. Now the target
table is always just the query's resultRelation. This removes a good
number of ugly hacks that had been objected to.
I'll park this in the January commitfest now.
