still, it might be useful to somehow label "for profit" as in "this page
might contain advertising hype and somebody's trying to make a living
out of it" and non-profit as in "community or privately maintained site
with no corporate or institutional backing".
this is not to create artificial divides, but just to avoid
misunderstandings. i have absolutely nothing against people trying to
get some money out of linux audio, but it is helpful to see at a glance
whether a page is for profit or not (i tend to read pages differently

decent transparent anti-aliasing), perhaps even a black-and-white logo
that can be colored any old way.
