You can also nest sites, create a folder, make it a site, and then have
your three sites as sub-sites of the parent site.

My understanding was that your zapi.getUtility() was not finding your
catalog and that you had three parallel sites from which you were doing
the catalog look up and the catalog was only in one of them, accumac
site:

/accumac/++etc++site/default/accumac_catalog

I guess the success of the catalog look up depends on what your self.context is 
when you are 
doing zapi.getUtility(), i.e. where you are looking up the catalog from.  I 
would expect
your code to find the catalog when self.context is inside accumac site, but 
would not 
expect the catalog to be found from inside the other two sites.

But then again I might be misunderstanding your problem :)
