Multiple wikis, nested hierarchically #192

The idea is to have subwikis visible in the URL space under the main wiki,
in separate repositories, e.g.


where each of these 3 wikis would have its own repository. This would be
useful (a) to reduce the size of repositories, and (b) to group together
wikis or projects-with-included-wikis which were previously created separately.

In MainWiki you would be able to create links into the other two, but not
vice-versa (because the subwikis should be able to be checked out from
their repositories and run independently of the main repository). I think
this is mostly possible now, by using Apache to proxy completely separate
gitit instances for each wiki. However:

* running one gitit instance for all wikis might be more efficient in terms
of heap memory usage and garbage collection

* it would be useful if the search facility in MainWiki could (optionally?)
search all the subwikis as well as MainWiki

* it would be less confusing for the users if the subwikis appeared in the
index listings of MainWiki

Ideally I would like to see arbitrarily deep nesting of subwikis supported,
as well (again, this can probably be done with apache for now).

This could also provide an easy way to differentiate permissions on subwikis, e.g.


where RestrictedWiki would only allow users to view pages.
