Not to overlook Joost's superior (to mine at least) marketing abilities,
but it doesn't seem to me neither that a plugin admin page is a fine ad
placement. Typically you load these pages once or a few times and then
never see them. Who wants to buy an ad for this?
Or maybe I didn't get the scope of the question and it was to add an ad in
every page of the admin area (like, in the top grey bar)?
About paypal donations: the best implementation I've seen to date is in
the XML Google sitemap plugin by Arne Brachold (definitely not sure about
how it's spelt, sorry:) that displays a list of recent donators. On top of
this if he would actually thank donators and maybe update the list, that
would be perfect </grin>
