That depends on how you define "often".  I wouldn't call 10 years from
C89 to C99 or C++98 to "C++0x" (7 years and counting) "often".  The 
majority of change from 2.x to 3.x, at least on the C++ side of things, 
had to do with moving into conformance with a standard that had been 
around for quite a while.  Now that GCC is doing pretty well w.r.t. 
conformance, I don't see any major upheavals for a while.  I'm sure the 
new optimizer changes will introduce some issues to deal with, but on a 
source code level I don't see why Postgres would have to work around them.
