Making SNI support configurable at runtime also seems a more attractive
solution to me - it would basically mean that in ssl_init_ctx(), the SNI
callback is not registered unless it's explicitly configured. I would
suggest using something like

   SSLEnableSNI port [port] ...

which would be used as a per-server directive (i.e. not within vhosts,
only globally) and enable SNI on the specified ports.

Sander, would a run-time configuration option still receive +1 from you?
This would only be needed for the 2.2.x backport, not for trunk, right?
