In the end you all convinced me the MS route was for the best after all.

Thanks for the responses.

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."

I would strongly recommend you guard your compatibility with future releases by activating MS instead of doing fancy footwork with the configuration files.
