Are you saying that there is a link from the special field to each of the
other fields as in wiki.d/ of the special field contains links such as
wiki1.d -> ../field1/wiki.d, wiki2.d -> ../field2/wiki.d etc. or something

Also, is it possible to make the search work across fields that have Shared
writable pages as explained on

Well, it'll be slow, but you could try creating a special "field" 
in the farm that has read-only references to the wiki.d/ directories
of each of the other fields.  Searches in this special field would
then look through all of the pages of the other fields.

I have no idea how the .pageindex would function in this case --
probably not very cleanly.  It might need to be disabled for
this special field.
