My point is getting rid of the domain mess, because accessing don't presents wmii-related information, accessing
10kloc don't presents 10kloc oriented information, accessing don't presents penis enlargement information. That's
why it is not a question of letting a domain survive or not -
the structure of the site has changed anyways as well, and this
makes also dead links in google. Renaming a wiki page for
instance has the same effect in google than renaming a domain, a
dead link. Actually my decision was to get rid of multiple
domains with different names pointing so a site which contains
different information than the domains might make people expect.
Setting up virtual hosts to handle the multiple domains means
more adminsitration effort, which I want to prevent. Setting up
URL rewriting also means more administration effort. Instead of
getting used to a mess, I try to clean the things up which have
evolved so far, that's why I only want a single domain for my
projects, which sounds more ideal to me.

Sure the transition won't work without any confusion,
and some brokeness, but after a while the new domain will be
established - and hopefully only one domain.
