[wp-hackers] Lyceum integration

It's fully possible to do multiple blogs on a standard WP
installation. You just put /wordpress/ in the root directory, and then
have each domain folder with its own index.php, config.php and
.htaccess, a symlink to the master wordpress directory, which has a
config.php containing "require($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] .

Each installation shares the WP files, but has its own db credentials,
including table prefix.

Unfortunately, of course, they also share a wp-content directory,
something I haven't been able to figure out how to get around. It's
great for sharing themes and plugins, but ideally they'd have their
own upload directories, which brings us to this,

Which is absurd. It would take about two seconds to allow config.php
to override the default '/wp-content/uploads' directory with a
separate local and web location. (so you can put it outside the
symlinked wordpress folder)
