C's mention of Apache suggests a possible approach.  If there's
something in Apache httpd that can force a subpath (wiki area) onto a
custom domain name, maybe by redirection (e.g. 301 or 303), then it
might work cleanly.  Even if the request used the standard name, the
response (e.g. in address bar) would use the custom name.

I don't know if such is available (or how it would play with
MediaWiki), but I'll look into it shortly.  It could be useful in
relieving pressure to set up separate pollwikis, which is something we
don't want to support yet, for tech reasons.
