[thelist] Handling multiple blogs on different domains

Depending on your directory structure on your server, you should be able to
pull this off with Movable Type. My movable type install is setup like

root/blog1 <--- movable type installed here
root/blog1/blog2  <-- other blogs are in a subdirectory on the server

Then when I configure the domain name I just point it to root/blog1/blogXXX.
I'm sure there are other ways of accomplishing the same thing, this was just
how I happen to have stumbled through it.
