SNI is a curious choice for a 'Universal' widget, especially when GAE offers dedicated(?) IP addresses. Carriers are still selling Android 2.x phones which will give a certificate error with the widget, and IE on XP isn't exactly a small target. Although i guess it depends on your market.

EDIT: Wow, GAE charges $39/mo[1] for an IP? I know IPv4 is scarce, but i charge my customers $10/mo for SSL, and even that is a big markup on the $1/mo Linode charge me. I would honestly suggest going the VPS route to improve browser compatibility.
