Changing the dirconf structure fields in-place seems ugly and may even 
be thread-unsafe (not sure).  I still can't see how this handles half 
the cases it needs to, as I've said several times now - SSLVerifyClient 
is only one part of this.  From a quick look I can't see how a reneg 
would be forced for any of:

1) SSLCipherSuite changed since original vhost
2) SSLCACeritificate* changed since original vhost (where both 
3) SSLOCSP* changed since original vhost

but it certainly should be.  A lot of the mod_ssl code will need to be 
very carefully reviewed since some core assumptions are being broken by 
supporting SNI.  I would go through each of the config directive which 
supports vhost context in turn.  What about SSLCertificateChainFile?  
What about CRLs?  etc etc.

It is also a complete cop-out to claim these issues aren't specific to 
SNI since we explicitly don't support any non-SNI configuration in which 
these paths can be triggered.  And for very good reason: *they don't 
work properly*.
