Perhaps "farm" and "field" are the wrong terms here, or invoke
the wrong metaphor.  The essential idea behind wikifarms is that
a single installation of PmWiki can be used for multiple, almost
totally independent wikis.  This allows them to share a common
set of core files (which makes it easier to upgrade them all at once),
and a common configuration file (farmconfig.php) that makes it
easier to institute a common set of settings and configurations
across the multiple wikis.  

So, we can even consider a change in terminology if anyone has
a better term for what happens.

Multiple puppets being run by a single hand (i.e. pmwiki.php)?
