Because encryption is set up before any HTTP headers are sent, name
based vhosting with multiple certificates is not possible.
The only thing that does work is multiple vhosts with one certificate
that validates all of them.
I've done that successfully with a project vhost server on ssl for
multiple software development projects. You can get a wildcard
certificate from rapidssl http://www.rapidssl.com for $199.
They're a dirt cheap certificate provider BTW $69 for a two year
standard webserver certificate accepted in most (if not all) browsers
