setup multiple SSL servers in one config

Thanks Igor,
   Are you saying that a single instance Nginx cannot handle multiple
sites with different SSL certificates?  The environment I'm trying to
emulate is working just fine with Pound right now.  In other words, one
instance of pound is running on my server that handles multiple SSL
certificates for multiple live domains (working like this for several
years).  Seems to me if Pound can handle the task, Nginx ought to be
able to as well.  Is the only option to run Pound in front of Nginx so
that Pound can handle the SSL before passing the traffic off to Nginx? 
I was hoping to eliminate Pound from the equation all together.
