Why is PostgreSQL getting dramatically more patches?

Bruce Momjian says

...the volume of patches [to PostgreSQL] has risen dramatically during the past few years.

This is total hearsay – I don’t have hard numbers, haven’t verified it myself, etc etc. But consider the source!

What can be responsible for this increase in patches to PostgreSQL?
