Aside from the issue of who might provide *.*., are you sure that this is
going to be supported on each client ssl lib? You're depending on these
libraries performing full glob expansion, and I would be slightly surprised
to hear that this actually worked. You can support * using a very simple
test, but glob expansion is an entirely different matter.
Anyway, if you're getting a new wildcard cert, get *\0.domain.com - much
more flexible :-)
