Yeah, me.

Yes, of course.

As I understand it, you can't just stick multiple SSL sites on a single
IP:port atm without excluding all clients that don't support SNI. The
point I was trying to make was that something like SNI should be a
requirement in SPDY rather than just optional, otherwise we could end up
in the situation where some SPDY clients support SNI and others don't,
which I'm sure nobody wants.
