Postgres doesn't support multi-db queries. So you could use $wgSharedDB
only if all the wikis were on the same db.
It doesn't need to. All wikis in the same DB, just different schema.
What you can do is to use an AuthPlugin authenticating
against a master
mediawiki install http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/AuthPlugin
I'd assumed since this is directly analogous (a schema essentially
serves as a prefix for your db objects) that it might be implemented
directly and not need a plugin.
