I'm not familiar with the murky recesses of mod_ssl.  But if I've
understood you aright, I think a good startingpoint would be to
see if you can hook something in to connection processing, that'll
in turn run something ahead of mod_ssl getting in to a connection.

Not sure if that actually leads anywhere useful.  Just a thought,
if you haven't already tried it.  Your main problem is that you
have a hack that shoehorns vhosts in where they don't belong.
