Web browsers use http://<server>/favicon.ico unless instructed
otherwise, so unless your wikis use different domain names you can't
give them different favicons using Apache configuration. You can
specify the favicon inside the HTML using a <link> tag, though--I've
successfully done that on some wikis I manage. Set html_head inside
wikiconfig.py like this:

    # favicon support (for both IE and FF)
    html_head = u"""
    <!-- for IE compatibility: -->
    <link rel="shortcut icon"
        href="/path/to/favicon.ico" />
    <!-- for FF, newer browsers -->
    <link rel="icon"
        href="/path/to/favicon.png" />

Firefox and IE use slightly different tags, and FF can use a PNG while
IE needs a .ico file.
