Host: based virtual hosts don't work well with SSL anyway (the server
doesn't get the Host: header until after all the negotiation and
certificate stuff has been done by which time it's a bit late).  I've not
seen people do wildcard ports with SSL; Stronghold just sticks in a
Listen *:443 and then <VirtualHost *:443> section.

The only thing to watch is that if someone connects to https://somewhere/
my copy of Netscape sends "Host: somewhere" and not "Host: somewhere:443"
