FWIW here's some evidence... Craig Kersteins did a talk on the
statistics across the Heroku fleet: Here are the slides from 2013
though I think there's an updated slide deck with more recent numbers
out there:

Cube shows up as the number 9 most popular extension with about 1% of
databases having it installed (tied with pg_crypto and earthdistance).
That's a lot more than I would have expected actually.

Personally I would love to change the name because I always found the
name the most confusing thing about it. It took me forever to figure
out what on earth a "cube" was. It's actually a vector data type which
is actually a pretty useful idea.
