interesting seems a little too hacky for my tastes.  And it seems to me it
would create problems of its own.  For example some sites would have a
custom theme avavlible just to them, or that diffrent sites have diffrent
sets of plugins.  Thanks anyway is interesting, although while i read that I
do wonder why the author didn;t just use multisite, lol.
