[wp-hackers] site sections, distinct theme per section

I'll second the multisite with subdirectories suggestion. Since themes for
things like tickets can also have functionality built in and you may be
going with something pre-built, seems like doing all this switching within a
single theme is more trouble than it's worth. Not to mention the weight of
scripts and stylesheets that aren't being used in X section but still being
loaded. My experience with a sprawling multisite subdirectory installation:
it mostly behaves like one site (especially if you use the admin bar to
access tasks - no dashboard switching), visitors are none the wiser, and
search engine results seem unaffected.
