What favicon plugin should I use in order to define favicons for Wordpress when I run in multi-site mode.

Uploading favicon.ico files is not an option for multi-site wordpress instances.

I am looking for something simple that will not pollute the generated pages with hidden advertising.

EDIT: Looking to be able to define favicons on a per site basis. Different favicons for different sites.

You shouldn't have to use a plugin for this. A favicon should be part of every WordPress theme by default – stffn May 22 '11 at 12:29
Have you ever used WordPress in network mode? I do not want to customize themes and have to manually upload favicons to strange locations in order to make this work. – sorin May 22 '11 at 12:38
No, favicons absolutely should NOT be a part of every WordPress Theme. A favicon is personal/site branding, and should be treated as user data/content that is separate from the Theme. Themes may change, but a user presumably wants the favicon to remain the same. – Chip Bennett May 22 '11 at 12:43
I ported a Favicon Plugin, but haven't touched it in a while. Maybe I should go back and make sure it's network-aware, and clean it up/ simplify it a bit. – Chip Bennett May 22 '11 at 12:44
What I mean is, it just a matter of uploading a favicon.ico file to the root of the installation. Then the <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" /> code will show the favicon – stffn May 22 '11 at 12:51

Now I am successfully using All In One Favincon Plugin.

Another option is Shockingly Simple Favicon. I am using this on my multisite installation.
