Ok, why not an environment for each site?  Just like production.rb or
development.rb, but demo.rb, mysite.rb.  Then, you just pass in -e

People do this quite frequently, only catch is to make sure that you
haven't relied on the environment setting for other stuff, but even that
you could change to "production" manually inside the demo.rb.
