Hmm, honestly I would rather keep them separate. PmWiki's code is
small, so duplicating it several times should not be an issue. Plus,
depending on how much local customization you have done, it may be
diffucult to upgrade all the sites at once to a newer PmWiki version withouth
having to re-adapt many of the local add-ons. If the wikis are kept
separate you could upgrade only the ones you want, without having to
upgrade (or at least not immediately) also all of the others.
