Advertisements for modual writers

I was thinking... and it'd be nice if there was a small box or area where a site could display it's ads in MMOUI Minion while the user is downloading from that site. (To try and help cover costs )

I believe support for such functionality is added to the updater. Though I haven't had time to take a look at the API yet so I'm not sure how is it handled.

Yes, we do wish to allow other site's to display their own ads if a user has a module installed for that site. It will have to be written into the module's code, however, for that to occur.

Please review the API for the Service interface, from which UpdateService is derived. The Service interface provides an API getAdvertisements() which will allow for this functionality.
It's my turn next.
