getting partner data on an opp

So sf has a standard opportunity object and a standard partner object whereby an opp can have 1 or more partners (opportunity partners).


Yet, there appears to be no way through formulas, roll up fields, triggers, workflow....zero options...for capturing any info or data...at all...on an opportunity with regard to that opps partners.  In other words, let's say I want to know even the most basic thing:


does this opp have a partner on it?


I can't even create a field that populates that data by looking at the opportunity partners on the opp.  


It appears the only way to do this is with a batch or scheduled batch job which is ridiculous.


Has anyone else had this problem?  Is there any way to summarize any partner info on an opp?  At all?  Thanks
