> The current function dropTable() that handles dropping multiple partitions is somewhat
inefficient.  For each partition you want to drop, it loops through each partition in the
table to see if the partition exists.  This is an _O(mn)_ operation, where _m_ is the number
of partitions to drop, and _n_ is the number of partitions in the table.  The running time
of this function can be improved, which is useful for tables with many partitions.
