What are people's feelings considering the size/shape of the ads? Is 
this negotiable (if not now, if/when there's a redesign in the future)? 
I find the large size detracts from the PostgreSQL masthead itself (but 
that's just my opinion).

This is probably more appropriate when a redesign is discussed, but I'm 
just floating this now because it came up.
