Drupal is the only one I've found that does it... I'm running quite a
few sites in a multi-site install (shared codebase), and for a while
two of them, iheartstella.com and justinhileman.info, shared content
as well. I really didn't have a need for shared content between those
sites so I ditched it, but it worked well while I was using it.
