Maybe not exactly what you are asking for but I recommend you play
with buildout a bit - I'm sure you'll appreciate the ease with which
you can manage independent installations in a repeatable and easily
modifiable way.

Without further knowing how these sites might be related or not
this is hard to answer but often times I prefer to have separate
Zope instances (-> different ZODBs) for different Plone sites.
Even if they share substantial configuration/add-ons etc.
Again, using buildout makes it a snap to create and maintain
as many Zope instances as you want. And using a common buildout
cache they can also mostly share the basic installation.

Just my 2 cents,
