Actually unless I am totally brain dead (which after using Apache since 1995
I may in fact be now at this point)

I feel this is not so much a SSL/Apache issue - more of a inet/port issue.

Think about it - HTTPS wants to talk to you via 443 - one one IP address per
port.  In a multi IP inet environment you get binds to work on the same PORT
but differentiated by IP (or in the case of HTTP/1.1 'host' command.)

We would want it to work without having to change the client software -
which we don't have access to anyways.  What can be done then?

Well, we can use two Apache source trees and two modssl source trees - both
talking on the  IP but different ports.  Say 443 and 4430 ...

But no; they are right at the modssl site -- There is no other way without
breaking the HTTPS default port.

It can be done. I feel it in my old Apache bones.
