*** nginx, apache with mod_ssl or mod_gnutls, cherokee and lighttpd
all support Single Name Indication nowadays.  So the mapping is not
1:1 anymore.  But some clients will get the 'first' certificate,
whatever it is: there are some glitches, but it generally works.

*** You should have a look at PSYC, especially the surf command that
serves documents via HTTP (using your local browser), from your PSYC
client (or IRC, or XMPP).
