We already had a few words on IRC with Thiago, but let me write some
ideas down before I forget.

That is very welcome, thank you for working on that!

Sure, but IMHO, adding this feature to the version 7 is not worth it: we
intend to maintain (and especially backport security fixes on)
owncloud 7 because that is the version shipped in Jessie, but the
packaging for owncloud 8.1 is ready for quite some time already (not
pushed yet to experimental since some dependencies are being processed
in NEW).

Yes, I do hope this feature will make it upstream, but would be happy to
consider it for Stretch no matter what. If you can rebase your patch on
the current stable8 branch of our repository, that would be nice.

Thank you for your proposal. Hopefully, a short (entry in the current)
README will be enough (i.e., there won’t be too much work for
administrators to set up multiple instances).

That looks nice, I hope I’ll be able to follow you up on that (maybe
during a face to face if you’ll be in DebCamp or DebConf).
