[wp-hackers] Network Installation for multisites

I'm just wildly guessing here, but maybe one of the reasons is because a
multisite network is more complex than a normal WordPress site - meaning
that the administrator of a network should have a bit more technical
knowledge and you would most-likely need FTP access to your site anyway.

Besides you already have to add a line of code to your wp-config.php in
order to enable network installation, so it's not a big hassle to put the
lines of code yourself.

Again - that was just a guess, so if anyone has concrete knowledge on the
matter I'd be very interested in learning about the reasoning.
