What you are describing is actually the acid test for converting two 
separate sites over to multi-site.  If you need to have a shared 
user-base between multiple sites, then you should be using multi-site. I 
quite often tell people to stick with standard WordPress when they tell 
me "No, the sites don't share authors/admins."

Yeah, you can do stuff to run multiple sites from the same wp install 
without doing the whole multi-site activation, but you're just going to 
be doing it wrong and fewer and fewer people will be using hacks/work 
arounds like the one that was posted.   I would strongly recommend you 
guard your compatibility with future releases by activating MS instead 
of doing fancy footwork with the configuration files.
