at the same time, i must add that i do not think we should allow
them. after all, why should google get to decide what might be
related? given the history of google, we are opening us up to
manipulation. we are debian, we have always been careful what to
endorse and what not (rather the latter, staying on the safe side).
haveing ads on the page might suggest that we endorse products that
google suggests.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
