I'd do neither until we consider the more salient point - will we use google 
ads in the new layout?  I don't see the point in adding skyscrapers to beo, 
then taking them away again in a new layout design.  It's good that we have 
the adsense account now, but ...

Anyhoo, feel free to ignore me and have a vote on it though :))  It's 
implementable at any rate, so I'm just making a suggestion, not completely 
vetoing the idea if the rest of content/theforum decides it's a good call.
