You may configure FSS settings site per site, see the comments in / 
path/to/iw.fss/iw/fss/etc/plone-filesystemstorage.conf.in. The way  
files are physically stored depends on the "strategy" you put in per  
site config sections. The place to store depend on "storage-path" and  
"backup-path" conf variables.

If you kept the default settings, it's a feature, if you made a per  
site configuration, it may be a bug because two site specific config  
cannot share the same FS path (Zope doesn't start and logs an explicit  
error message about FSS settings) - but I need more info to be  
affirmative on this ;)

Have a look in path/to/iw/fss/configuration to see how we use ZConfig.

Not at the moment, but a mini spec for this and contribution are  
welcome. This could be the future default configuration but this would  
break compatibility with existing configuration files.
