I don't think there's significant overhead, especially considering using 
multiple T3 installations is so much more flexible.

If you use the same source, even the bytecache (eaccelerator etc.) is 
shared between all the installations, and the PHP interpreter runs in 
global mode anyway, so mod_php or fcgid does not at all care about your 
TYPO3 installations.
