yes, I'm using also a farmconfig for my private website (heavy.ch)

1. First I set the "user_homewiki" in the farmconfig.py (so the user dir
und user homepages will be on a single place)

2. Second I did something for the links/Trails. I added/changed every
intermap.txt (on each sub-wiki in there own data dir; well exactly I did
first some symbolic links; so I've got only one file to manage). It
looks like:
WikiOne http://wikione.mystuff.com
