Several VHosts, one database

I'd like to ask, whether the following idea is sound:

I've got a bugzilla installation, where several Intranets are
connected to a single machine. As a consequence, the machine has
multiple network interfaces, and, in particular, multiple IP adresses.
Depending on the users intranet, a different IP address is used as the
browsers URL.

It is therefore mandatory, that the urlbase parameter varies,
depending on the browsers URL. I intend to resolve the problem as

For every IP address, I'll create a VHost in Apache, with a configuration like

  SetEnv PROJECT "Name of Net"

Likewise, I'll be setting up Bugzilla once for every net with

  PROJECT="Name of Net" perl

The various Bugzilla Vhosts will be configured to share a single
database. I won't be able to share the data directories, but I hope
that will be fine.

In essence, I will have the same situation that I would have when
clustering Bugzilla, only without the shared data directories.

Are there any problems I will have to expect?
