This is only true if you don't insert more coins and buy the Partitioning
or you use those coins to switch to Informix.

You can currently use a union all view and write appropriate rules
for insert, update and delete in Postgresql. This has the only disadvantage,
that Partitions (fragments, table parts) cannot be optimized away,
but we could fix that if we fixed the optimizer to take check constraints
into account (like check  (year = 2000) and select * where year=1999).
