I tried imagining a field-ectomy on 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/WikiFarms and it seemed to work for 
me. It breaks the metaphor but calling a wiki a wiki is less confusing 
than calling wikis with siblings fields.

OTOH a farm-ectomy is a little tougher to perform without getting into 
renaming files and variables.
