Oops. According to wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Name_Indication nginx already can
support this.

However, I just noticed - IE6 and IE7 on XP don't. Doh. How pathetic.
All it would be is a frickin couple files changed probably.

For nginx to support it, you just need OpenSSL built with SNI support
(--enable-tlsext) and I'm not sure if you have to specify
ssl_protocols or something related to 'force' that protocol all the
time in nginx or not.

This sucks though. I have to support IE6/IE7 on XP...
