Actually, "master wiki" sounds better to me than "home wiki", particularly
since the master wiki's "local" skins etc are actually the global skins.

But do we really need a master wiki and this distinction? Isn't what we
have just a side effect from doing a single wiki installation, as opposed 
to satisfying a specific purpose?

I'm not suggesting that we prevent people from having a master wiki, but
it'd be nice if it could be worked around with some extra effort. It's 
late here, but I imagine one way to work around it is to move the master 
wiki's wiki.d/-directory to another location. (This might require a new 
URI of course)
