Hehe, why?  Aside from the fact that it makes it that much easier for malware to serve pr0n off pwned machines? :-P
*** 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.

Great, thanks a million for this. In this case, I'm happy to be a dinosaur with an outdated understanding of the web.  So DynHttpd could tunnel TLS all the way back to your box, after 'sniffing' which domain is requested so it can decide which tunnel to use.

*** 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).

Unless I misunderstand, I am trying to go the other direction - serve stuff to everyone else, not open content from another network in my local browser.
