[Mediawiki-l] is there any benefit from having multiple wikis on the same server run on different mysql daemons?

As the number of wikis we host increases, I worry about our single mysql server becoming a bottleneck.  I assume that by modifying $wgDBserver  in the different copies of LocalSettings.php, I can point each wiki to a different port that is running a different instance of mysql.

But is this worth doing?  My concern is that when we do db intensive stuff on wiki A, wikis B...X will underperform.
