OOOH...tell me why it would matter if I had javascript code that
operated on multisite but not on the root blog?  My subdomain "author"
sites rely on quite a bit of display-altering javascript that has
nothing to do with the parent site.

No, I didn't have multisite running.  I *thought* I did, went through
testing the main site's functionality (shopping cart etc. etc.) was
pretty happy with the new server, went to the first subdomain and it
wasn't there.  Turned on the wildcard domains setting.  As soon as I
did, it went back to dog-slow.

And THANK YOU.  That is absolutely the most robust answer I've gotten
in six months of asking around at various places.
