------- Additional Comments From wrowe@apache.org  2007-02-26 01:14 -------
While pointing out that name-based virtual hosts can potentially work with
alt-subject common names, or wild card certificates, it should also be pointed
out that they work with SSL Upgrade (although this is not used in practice
with any browser I'm aware of).  Mostly a coding thing.

This SHOULD be documented.  But it should also be stressed that these are all
complex solutions and are frequently misconfigured, and the explanation of WHY
a 'vanilla' named virtualhost with a 'vanilla' certificate just isn't possible.

At least to the level of detail that lets us kick users out of users@ into the
documentation at a reasonable starting point for them to solve their own issue.
