I have no problem with as many icons or whatever as people want to put
up. It can get a little out of hand when some random site has a
"powered by..." icon, and the readers are unlikely to have any idea what
they are talking about. But this is a software site, so it actually
does mean something. So don't feel shy about having an icon or link up
In fact, I think sponsorships are actually good for the site -- it shows
it's supported by variety of people and organizations, which is what
makes a project viable.

I just though, oh, maybe webware.info... but no. Domain squatters are
so damned annoying! None of webware.com, .net, .org, .ca, .us, .biz, or
.info resolve to anything, but they are all taken. Bastards! Sigh.
