No configuration files!

The logical thing to do would be to have a base_url in the blogs  
table, and then default to blog_id 1 when the incoming URL fails to  
match any of the base_urls.

The problem with this is that multi-blog patches will be *really*  
invasive.  That means that it'll be very hard to maintain an out-of- 
tree multiblog patch.  Either the patch will rot and need major work  
to get it to apply to each new Typo release, or the multi-blog  
version will fork off and become its own project.

Given this, we'd almost certainly be best off having multi-blog  
support in the main Typo tree, if we're going to do it at all.
