this a temporary measure until we got a "real(?)" banner ad system.  at the
time of development, there was no banner ad system in zope that can furnish
us some stats that we can give to advertisers.  although later there was
banner system (a zope product), we just got stuck with phpads.

we have now real media installed, and will be replacing phpads with it.

my take:
sales dept and upper management needed a proven system that can give
advertisers assurance that advertisers got what they asked for.  and banner
system, though a good product, can't give us what real media can; in terms
of stats and other stuff.  so, we forked some dough to get some dough in :)

but i'm still looking at banner system.
