Apparently the recently discussed change [webmasterworld.com] has mostly affected large sites.

So, here is a thought:
number of pages known by google stayed constant;
pagerank stayed constant;
yet for some specific multi-keyword phrases inner pages describing specific widgets have dropped deep down the serps in my case. In some cases pages with a PR2 is way below PR0 pages in SERPs.

So, the only thing that's changed was the display order of search results.

And the best I can tell, it's now sorted on the PR of the site's front page, not on the PR or the page featured in the search results.

A silly irrelevant page on a front-page-PR8 site ranks higher than a good relevant end-page-PR3 page on a front-page-PR5 site.

Do I make sense? Can you check if it holds true in your industry?
