Well, as Kai brings up, you get one cert per IP. If you're using
subdomains you *might* be able to get away with this.

*.example.com as a cert common name will work for foo.example.com, and
bar.example.com. etc. So long as you're using subdomain certs this
works okay. If you're doing different names, you're pretty sunk.

"Name-based virtual hosting cannot be used with SSL secure servers
because of the nature of the SSL protocol."
