By the way, name-based virtual hosting *can* be used with SSL under
Apache, provided you use the same certificate for each virtualhost, which
is acceptable under certain conditions (you own a certificate for
*.foo.com, you build Virttualhosts a.foo.com, etc.).

Probably this is what you meant with your question?
