Ok. After much deliberation and rewriting and reordering and hating it.
I think I've finally come up with something that we could use on page 4
that was useful for the kinds of people who read sponsorship brochures
(not the kind of people who know what a CORBA ORB is).

Unfortunately for anyone translating, this is a complete rewrite.

I'm still not entirely happy with it, but I think it may be closer to
what we're after. Send me your commentary.

If we need to get copies of this out soon, it may be prudent to only do
a small sample run (this is quite doable nowadays with modern digital
printing) while we proofread and fix the issues with all of these
changes I've pushed: then do a larger run once we're happy.
