I think it would be absolutely reasonable for us to provide a wee  
write-up (aka Testimonial/Reference) of how we found it - and them -  
in practise, and for them to be able to use that with potential  
customers, which would include highlighting it on their site.

That's very different from both:
*) OTT raving about them - it should be an absolutely fair, accurate  
assessment that we can honestly stand behind
*) huge-ass link on weo: ("weo redesign: sponsored by TPM!!!!!")

They wouldn't be trading their services for advertising (ie us saying  
what they tell us to); they're trading them for us taking the time to  
provide them with our opinions, and allowing them to tell others what  
we said.

I also think it would be reasonable in the 'how we did it' article I'm  
assume we're going to end up writing to mention that that's how we did  
co-ordination, with a link. We should do that anyway, regardless of
