Yes, I know Magnus did a graph for the PG-EU conference and it was also
flat; perhaps he can post it here. His chart was pulled from the
Postgres archives, so it is even more accurate than our graphs.

I also was confused by its flatness. I am finding the email traffic
almost impossible to continue tracking, so something different is
happening, but it seems it is not volume-related. I am going to post
another blog tomorrow with more thoughts.
