What I want to be able to do is to simply create many 'sites' within a

Now, I'm not sure that my sites actually need to be true Zope3 sites.
Maybe I just need to have a marker interface at the top level of each of
my sites, and that will be enough.

Probably best to "Make a Site". This will enable you to install utils into each site. This will also enable you set up resources specific to each site. This could be useful for your skinning requirements.

But what I don't seem to have any
way of doing is setting the appearance per site.  I haven't looked at
the users problem yet.

You can install separate PAU's (Pluggable Auth. Util.) into each site to have different user bases for each site. Alternatively installing a PAU into a top level site enables you to share the user base across sites.

I could set up multiple skins, and then change the skin by using apache
rewrite rules.  But both parts of this are quite hard and complex, and
involve restarting both systems.  I'd like to be able to set simple
things about the appearance TTW.  At this point I fear I'm going very
wrong, but I'll continue anyway  ;-)

I'm guessing a little about how you want to set the "appearance TTW"...

Write a utility to manage certain site skin config. and properties. Your skin can consult this utility to obtain appearance parameters/objects. Also the util. could make images/files (logo's, css) available as resources to your skin.
