No new IP address is needed if you are comfortable with every visiting 
browser displaying a warning that the hostname on the SSL certificate 
doesn't match the actual hostname.  I'm not sure exactly what hostname 
would come up for member web sites on mire, but we could certainly set 
it up so that something like "generic.hcoop.net" came up, if that ever 
became an issue for anyone.
