You only need to setup virtual hosts if a different site/configuration
should be selected based on the host name/ip address/port/etc.

I think moin moin supports virtual hosting via the farmconfig
functionality. So unless I'm missing some detail regarding why
you would want a different apache configuration for each wiki
(ie. different log files, etc.) I think you can accomplish the
different wiki per hostname at the moin level.
