Be warned tha in order to take advantage of multiple IP names
(ie aliases) on a single IP address, the browser must support HTTP 1.1
and not HTTP 1.0. The main difference (at least for this particular
usage) is that it sends the IP name being used (HTTP_HOST) to the
server. The server can take advantage of it only if it receives this
