An SSL-using virtual host is configured just like any other virtual host
from Apache's persective (and therefore to Zope's as well assuming
you're using ProxyPass or something to shift the traffic to Zope). I
would expect issues with that dynamic IP, though -- SSL certificates are
tied to IP addresses, which means the only cert you can use is the
testing cert that comes with mod_ssl.
