Gonna chime in here.
I find multi-blog support for the core Typo project to be feature bloat
myself. 9.5 times out of 10 there will be 1 blogger or one blog with
many bloggers blogging on the same
blog (say that 5 times fast!). Don't you think the multi-blog feature
would only be useful to a small minority of our users and not the 95%
