Make multisite options configurable by default (include in wp-config.php)

Description

Since most/all of the multisite_* variables that, to my knowledge anyway, determine whether or not multisite support is enabled are a true/false thing, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be possible to include them in the stock wp-config.php set false, if necessary. That way those who don't have access via FTP to edit the file directly aren't posed with problems of a difficult nature--I actually used to be on a host that allowed PHP apps through their installer, but didn't allow FTP access (I don't get it either). Since WP generates its .htaccess rules seemingly on demand depending on your permalink structure, that might make things a little better integrated. Of course, I also may have absolutely no clue of which I speak.

We're forcing you to edit wp-config.php here to decrease the number of individuals using multisite who should not be using multisite. It's deliberately designed to make you jump through hoops.

That'll change when we improve multisite further in a future release, particularly the admin area, some of its restrictions, etc.

MS is not for the faint of heart, and we want people to need to do the legwork like wp-config and htaccess necessary to then manage the network once it is set up.

Closing as wontfix for now; we'll surely revisit this in the future.
