I can't critique most of the Woven stuff in Stikiwiki, nor the user model,
but I will not avoid several comments:

It is better if StikiService had done all the creating a StikiSite work
in startService, added a method:

    def getResource(self):
        return ss

Then, a similar scheme to the one I detailed in my last mail with
multi-services would probably allow you to do something like:

s = getStikiService("/tmp/cog", "stiki")

etc. etc.
