The latest Drupal from CVS (4.6.0) offers multisite configuration files,
but currently the conf_init function in includes/bootstrap.inc will also
include the :portnum URL specification in the directory name, which does
not seem right (and the colon character may cause problems on

Snippet from bootstrap.inc:
 * Example for a fictitious site installed at
 * http://www.drupal.org/mysite/test/ the 'settings.php' is
 * searched in the following directories:

If the site is: http://www.drupal.org:8080/mysite/test/
the same list of directories should be searched as listed in the
example in the file, and the :8080 should not be added to the directory
name (I think...)

I don't know enough PHP to submit a patch, but this is probably easy
for those who know this stuff :-)

Won't commit.  Removing the port seems like a bad idea (I could have two
drupal sites at two different ports but otherwise identical URLs) and
adding regex' all over the map isn't advised.  If ":" is an invalid
character, then there might be more such characters.  I suggest we
replace them with '.' and that we document this behavior much like we
do with $db_url.
