You don't even need SNI if all you want is some SSL goodness for a side project. Just make your web server listen to a different port for each HTTPS site. Most of your users won't care about the port as long as there's a padlock somewhere, and the ones who know better will probably know that any port is as good as port 443.

  1st site: https://www.firstsite.com:12345/
  2nd site: https://www.secondsite.com:24328/
  3nd site: https://www.thirdsite.com:37712/
You can have thousands of HTTPS websites on a single IP address while fully supporting every browser.
