I don't think that any ads-supported 1:1 content mirror (I don't see much added value atm, we have some kind of book source support already) is any good opportunity to get money, sorry. 
Why would users want to see stale ads supported version, when there's no-ads version with fresh one. The amount of how much we show our fundraising banners is just thing of organizational efficiency and ambitions. 

If WMF wanted to spend less money, the fundraiser would have much lower profile, right? :) 
I somehow want us to think about our users and service as primary objective, not just organizational issues.
