Are there any plans to make it easier for individual blogs within MU to use their own domains? The last time I checked the WP forums – admittedly quite a while ago – various hacks and workarounds were being discussed but there was no conclusive agreement on what would be the best approach.

Obviously, MU’s core purpose is to allow organizations to offer their members/students/whatever their own blog under the same domain but, judging by the forums discussions, it is clear that a lot of people are also interested in the idea of centrally controlling one installation of MU rather than dozens of separate WordPress instances.

Please forgive my ignorance if this need has already been catered to.
