I don't think you should be the last person to complain -- after
careful discussion and negotiation, we settled on having a
"sponsoring" page under community.  A proposal to have a personal,
non-lilypond-specific, advertizement on the main website page goes
far beyond that.  In some ways I think you should be the *first*
person to complain!

that's what we made David do.

You have the added advantage that if Valentin is dragging his
heels on the report, you can track him down and physically force
him to release it.  You're bigger than him.  :)
