We were thinking of having a single pmwiki installation with separate 
quotas by WikiGroups

Actually, the quota is mainly for uploaded files. Based on discussions 
we've had with our user community (various state agencies), we expect them 
to upload maps, huge powerpoint presentations, etc that will overwhelm our 
disk space if not kept in check.

Per group would be best. We'd be providing services to state agencies and 
the ability to give a bit more space to important functions and those we 
depend on for our existence. Thanks,
