I believe the term "wiki" should not include the PmWiki code. It should 
only be the content, and configurations.

In fact the subsequent definition of HomeWiki seems to reinforce that:
> A wiki in a farm contained in the PmWiki directory,

> PmWiki installation directory
I think shortening this to PmWiki directory *may* be misleading. The 
installation part seems to imply code to me. Thus PmWiki code directory 
might be a more apt definition based on wiki's being content and config.

If we go the route of
wikis = content/config
pmwiki code = code

Then we need global (or farm) wide configurations as well, which we 
already have.
