(or am I mistaken?  ;-)
There is the Ben's proposal, too, but it seems 
less "professional" in the above sense (sorry, Ben...).

Do you mean ads will be displayed at the LIT pages?
It has its advantages (e.g., possibility for sponsorships)
and disadvantages (e.g., labelling the site as "commercial").
