Possible to have multisite within a multisite running Buddypress?

So with wp 3.5 it's now possible to create a multisite within a multiside? How does one create this?

I'm thinking of using the second multisite as the place for a buddypress install (since buddypress is best installed as a main site, not on a subdomain of a multisite).

Once complete, would users of the main multisite have the same access to the second (sub) multisite and vice versa?

How might the membership plugin integrate with these two multisite?

    Greetings Diduwin and Happy New Year!

    Thank you for the GREAT questions.

    This indeed can be done which rather then a MultiSite within a MultiSite could be more accurately described as a network of networks.

    Check out the Networks for WordPress plugin to accomplish this task of having a network of networks.

    Once complete, would users of the main multisite have the same access to the second (sub) multisite and vice versa?

    Nope not unless you add the users to the other sites as well though it may be possible that the root Cookie plugin may facilitate this but would need to be tested in the environment to be certain.

    How might the membership plugin integrate with these two multisite?

    All bets are off on this one since Membership takes over the site/network it is installed on and I have no idea what the consequences or outcome would be of trying this and how it would react to the other MultiSites if at all.
