Actually, there IS another option.  setup ssl to listen to multiple PORTS
on the SAME IP!

that allows for unique pathing for routing to the appropriate vhost.  but
i'm trying to figure out how to make all this work.  the wood's burning
but the smoke hasn't cleared yet ;-).  suggestions welcome.

fwiw, the login links are for known admins so the end user experience for
all of this doesn't have to be pretty.
