Sooner or later someone will take OpenClipart, make a copy, and include
advertising.  This is inevitable, so we may as well give it some
consideration and find tasteful ways to do it and put the funds back into
the project.

(Wikipedia resists advertising but has some kind of a deal with
Answers.com who have a copy of Wikipedia which does include advertising,
and it seems a whole lot of content that got trimmed from Wikipedia.)
