I'm not sure about what do you mean by "to be careful that the URL
encodings are shared between your site.conf files" ?

Each of my site#.conf contains this "minimal number of things" :
database_base: ${database_dir}/site#
limit_urls_to: ${start_url} # or something else (it depends on
the site #)
case_sensitive: true # or false (it depends on the site #)
remove_default_doc: default.htm # or something else, it depends on...
                                         # ... the site # ! (you guessed ;-)
include: ${config_dir}/_commun_include

And that's all (everything else is in _commun_include and is the same for
each site #)

Well... How could I be sure that "the URL encodings are shared between my
site#.conf files" ?
