You should look into how Debian manages this. In summary, multiple  
blogs are hosted off the same server and same wp-install, by  
rewriting wp-config.php as

/** WordPress's Debianised default master config file
Please do NOT edit and read about how the configuration works in the  


define('ABSPATH', '/usr/share/wordpress/');



where config-host.php contains database information for each  
individual blog.

I have done this with ruckerz.oldbrownshoe.org,  
sara.oldbrownshoe.org, etc.

I've further added plugins to customize the theme directories (so  
each blog can manage their own themes), cache, uploads.  
Unfortunately, so many plugin authors hard code wp-content/plugins  
that each blog cannot have their own plugins .

My life would be much easier if I could filter the location of wp- 

The obvious benefit (at least from an administrator's point of view)  
is that I can upgrade all my WP installations via apt-get.

If you're interested in this setup, e-mail me privately.
