SoC demographic stats

The Google people have published some numbers about this year Summer of Code.

I am still jaws open. is ranking above organizations such as The Mozilla Foundation, Eclipse or Ruby Central !!

How would you interpret this?
Could it perhaps be an indication that Haskell and FP in general is starting to become more popular among the masses, at least young masses?
Or could it just mean that project proposals were terrific -they were, imho- and attracted a lot of minds?

In one way or another it is awesome, and I am really thankful to all the people in Google and in who have made this possible.
