I see, and now I agree with you it's better to decouple partition  
and data insertion.

Even more importantly, I just discovered (trying and then reading  
pgsql docs) that the rule
system is completely bypassed by the COPY FROM statement, so I think  
I'll rewrite
everything using some sort of trigger-generating procedure because I  
want this stuff
to work transparently (and we do lots of copy from).
Thanks for the advices,
