Since the Host: header is part of the encrypted stream, it is not
known to the server by the time the cert is required to establish an
SSL connection.  For this reason it is not possible to do name-based
virtual hosting w/ SSL.

Perhaps we should make this an explicit failure condition in the
mod_ssl code?
