Nope.  Hostname verification was never a good idea -- the "hostname" is
just a vague notion, at best -- lots of hostnames can map to one or more
IP addresses of the server.  It's exposed to the application code, so if
a client application wants to do it, it can.  But I recommend against
it.  It's a complication that doesn't belong in the basic support, that
is, the SSL module.  I'll add a note to this effect in the documentation.
