Is there any way to get the fcgi processes to be shared across sites?

Right now, if you start one site up with 3 and one with 2, you'll get 7 total processes. This, of course, cuts into the memory quite substantially.

Hello,

Sharing FastCGI processes between sites implies the processes process incoming requests fast enough so they can handle both sites simultaneously. Which means you are running more FastCGI processes for one site than necessary.

Ergo, just run enough FastCGI processes per site as necessary.

Sincerely,

Valentin I.

That's assuming the processes don't sit idle. It'd be nice to be able to devote a set of fastcgi processes to ensure maximum performance across all the sites, instead of having to fire of fastcgi processes for every single site separately, just sitting in memory, regardless of whether or not they are active.
