Well, listing the sponsor pretty much *is* selling advertising
space... Though I hope it was more than 99 cents ;)

We definitely need a good venue for advertising sponsorship of
features, but I don't think the commit message is that.

(Also, a lot of the commit messages would contain "feature sponsored
by redhat" for example - else we'd exclude those who invest a *lot* of
time and money in postgres while promoting those that spend money on
single and/or smaller things..)
