I developed a corresponding sync. tool and a search engine (already public)
which works fine :-).
Hope the sync. tool will be public soon.

Have you tried
dumping all of your wikis (see
<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/XML_dump#XML_dump>), and importing all
of the dumps into one wiki?
I'm working with a group that has customized their mediawiki
installation so that they can create multiple wiki instances, each
with their own database, that have no knowledge of each others existence.
This was done for security and privacy reasons.
The dumpBackup.php utility seems to be built for a single mediawiki
instance that uses a single database so there is no option to pass it
a database name to dump.
I can dump each individual databases and try to merge them. Has
anybody tried that?
Thanks - Tod
Our Maintenance class includes a --wiki param which accepts something
--wiki=thedb or --wiki=thedb-theprefix and sets MW_DB and MW_PREFIX
constants you can use in your LocalSettings.
Though I could have sworn rather than that we had a proper wiki setting that
set a variable with a wiki id the LocalSettings could use in the cli in
place of the domain testing you have for web requests.
