Oops, I missed a point...

As I mentioned, wikifarms already do this,  with the possible
exception of recipes:  

  - skins can be in the pub/skins/ directory of either the farm or field

  - configuration can be done globally to a farm and locally to a field

  - each field can have its own local pages, as well as share a
    set of global pages from the farm

I just don't see that we need to substantially change things
for the sake of recipes, especially when it's not at all
difficult to get them to work now.
