I think if you search back through the mailing list archives, you'll
find mention of a number of commercial products, and I don't recall
there being any uproar on the list about any of them because of it.
Just because this is an open-source project, I don't think that
prohibits the mentioning of commercially available products when
relevant and appropriate.  If you can recommend a useful product that
may help someone else - whether it's an open-source product or not - I
think it's perfectly reasonable to do so.

Maybe others have a different opinion, but that's just my 2 cents, for
what it's worth.
