Mostly the SSL issues, making the work/reward tradeoff not worth the
effort.

I don't want to point www.noisebridge.{org,com} at a host that is
listening on port 443 without a valid cert, so the vhost has to either
have a valid subjectAltName cert or else not be listening on port 443.
That's why we don't simply have all three TLDs pointing to the same IP
(since our cheapo SSL provider doesn't offer multidomain certificates,
and I hate to give the SSL mafia more money).  Or we could burn an IP
per TLD but that seems wasteful.

If you have a plan for dealing with the above, I'm all ears.
