One important thing to bear in mind (and I'm digging into second-hand
memory banks here) is whether this would affect our relationship with
the various companies who donate bandwidth & hosting services. I don't
think OSU OSL has any issue with this, but IIRC, hosting in Red Hat's
colo had a "no ads" condition attached.

Worth investigating, at least - if we end up with $150K advertising
revenues a year and an extra $300K hosting costs to pay, it would be a
bad deal.
