        Wow. Thanks for sharing this info. There is such an extension
(3.1 of RFC3546). This means shared-IP virtual hosting with the current
HTTPS protocol could happen.. although it'd need to be implemented in
OpenSSL I suppose, as the most common web-server (Apache httpd) uses it
and even other popular browsers such as Mozilla, Konqeror, Safari and
Firefox use it.
