Just to be clear on what I'm reading...

Apache is listening on a single IP, ports 443 and 80.
Apache hosts multiple http sites with name based virtual hosts
Apache also hosts multiple https sites with their own certificates
( and as name based virtual hosts.


I understood this to be an impossible task with https servers, based on the
key exchange process.

Am I reading that apache does this just fine?  If so I know some developers
who will be thrilled.
