Adapted the name checking to fit into the dpi, plus server name indication
while I was at it.

Looks like it may be working. I'll push the code to the server later if
you can promise to help give it heavy testing in coming days.

When you're browsing, if you just change http to https, so many sites that
don't expect TLS connections will offer up certificates that are broken in
some way. And then try the various cancel/continue combinations...
