Not to start a war, but that this is basically what I said. Considering that 
he's getting cheap certificates already, SNI might be an option for him. I 
never said it was a generally acceptable solution, I'm well aware that 
roughly 25% of the OS's today are Windows/XP, and presumably a large portion 
of those use IE on this platform.
