Am planning to do the above by using the check constraint specified for each
partition. This constraint's raw_expr field ends up becoming the whereClause
for the rule specific to that partition.

One question is whether we should we allow auto creation of UPDATE rules
given that updates can end up spanning multiple partitions if the column on
which partitioning is specified gets updated?

Also if we decide to auto - add rules for UPDATE, the raw_expr will need to
be modified to refer to "OLD."col, which can be quite a headache. We do not
have parsetree walker/mutator functions as far as I could see in the code.
