Yahoo is poised to launch an ad network for small Web publishers styled on a similar offering from Google, sources familiar with the plan told CNET News.com, a move that promises to sharpen competition between the search giants.

Yahoo Aims for AdSense [news.com.com]

Fundamentally, this is probably the best news for the democratization of the web I have heard in quite awhile.

google's tos prohibits this...but it would be neat if they would allow this just to retain publishers who also want to run yahoo.

could publishers very quickly be able to discern whether y or g was paying more? they could do that anyway.

however...this could potentially eliminate a problem that adsense publishers have: running multiple adsense blocks is sometimes counterproductive. running a second block that is not adsense but yahoo would allow one to avoid some of the pitfalls of smart pricing.

if only go would go for this (allowing both on the same page)

Or you make a simple php script to do 50-50 split for a while and discern which ads pay better at the end of the week and stick with them. Run the php script every so often in case it changes.
