Multiple instances of DAMP versus Multisite support

Thank you for DAMP, awesome! Question from a Drupal newbie ...

Can I and/or should I run multiple instances of DAMP on Vista to support development for multiple sites not sharing code, contributed modules, nor databases?

DAMP's multi site feature would make managing multiple sites easy but these sites have nothing to do with each other and I am concerned with performance overhead and compatibility issues tied to loading many different modules not used across all site. ... or is that a pointless concern because I just don't know any better?

Thank you for any help; fully appreciated.

You can import or create sites into different disk directories but it's not necessary and may not be preferred. Creating a multi-site installation of shared code helps with the task of keeping modules up to date. Performance isn't an issue unless you turn on modules on sites where you aren't using them. With DAMP, you can also create multiple code directories if you wish.
