I believe the 'PMWiki engine' (cf defs in the current 
PmWiki/WikiFarmTerminology) could be stored in a subdomain, eg. in 
pmw.example.com, and the various 'wikis' in their own directories under 
www.example.com (/wiki1/, /wiki2/, etc).

If you plan, expect or 'fear' that in the future you will host more than 
one 'wiki' in your domain(s) on the same server, then it would be 
pertinent to already from beginning start with a 'WikiFarm', having the 
engine in the subdomain and the first 'wiki' in 'www.example.com/wiki1/'.

I therefore conclude that the first part of Christian's 'slightly 
different' definition makes a lot of sense.
