It's usually not that difficult, and I'm generally willing to help
with that.  :-)

But before we get too far, I should note that it *is* possible to 
have different URLs within a single wiki.  At least one site I 
know does this, and my site does it also.  For example:


Both are the same wiki, but have different URLs.  And
if you link to a page in the Pm group on pmwiki.org, it
automatically forwards the request to the pmichaud.com url.
See, for example http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/MultiUrl 
(follow the page link).

Getting a wiki to do this isn't necessarily easy or
straightforward (and it does hold some surprises when doing
searches and the like), but it is possible to have one wiki
with multiple urls.
