anything proposed today to be added would appear *after* SNI which is
already implemented in:

    * Mozilla Firefox 2.0
    * Opera 8.0
    * Internet Explorer 7
    * Google Chrome

I'm not certain where SNI was added by Google for Chrome, but most
likely it could be integrated into WebKit for Safari for a future
version.
