I too have not personally tested this, but I didn't think it was
possible either.  I understood it to only create a single /xdocs
directory so I'm not sure exactly how it could work?  Shucks, it's
been a while, but I've always understood "single forrest
instance->multiple projects" to be a limitation of the current system
regardless of the "mode" its operating in?
