As Bri said, nice and easy with SSO. Right, I guess ShinyNewEvolt has to be 
a commerce app as well as CRM and CMS and Community Portal.

Well, I've worked extensively with various ad revenue models, and there are 
very, very few that work. We'll have to wait and see if home-brew text ads 
are going to be a viable model for evolt, but I'm reasonably optimistic in 
the short term.
