Many SSL web sites on one IP with Apache 2.2, GnuTLS (Debian Lenny)

This tutorial describes how you can host multiple SSL-encrypted web sites (HTTPS) on one IP address with Apache 2.2 and GnuTLS on a Debian Lenny server.
Pound, a reverse proxy, can be used to provide an SSL front end to multiple back end web apps, web sites, and java apps. This isn't really the same thing as the article provides - it is not name-based virtual hosting to SSL. It isn't perfect, but works surprisingly well.

Basically, you install the SSL cert into pound.cfg and listen on port 443. Then configure multiple backends and proxy names to normal HTTP (non-SSL) services running either on the same or different machines.
