Hi Ryan,

This is exactly what I planned on doing, the only difference would be to use s3 for all document / media storage.  This is the same way the Ubuntu packages come and it got me thinking that this may be the best way to go about it.  We have 2 projects starting this upcoming week and we will be using the method you described with some slight modification.  I will be sure to report back with any progress I make with this system.

Thank you,

Client specific plugins are of course added here too. This setup allows me to have different sets of plugins for each client while still running wp core on one install. Remember wp-content directory on the client site is not a symlink. Only the common individual plugins are.
