[typo] Heavy RAM usage? Instability?

I'm realizing that if typo allowed for multi-blog installations, perhaps 
I could reduce the memory consumption, because I have like 5 concurrent 
instances of Typo to serve 5 different blogs. If I could combine them 
somehow, a single dispatch would be enough for all of them.

I think I saw someone mentioning that he was working on having this 
happen. I'd definitely benefit of that change, but I realize that this 
implies major architectural changes and that it won't be easy to merge 
these changes into the main codebase, unless the maintainers put a 
voluntary effort to facilitate that.

  Scott, Tobi, what do you say of having Typo be multi-blog capable?
