Feature: optionally use different hostname for self-signed cert

Bug Description


By default, `sudo make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil` creates a self-signed SSL cert whose hostname matches the current machine's. It would be nice to be able to specify a different hostname, as I would like to avoid leaking internal information via the SSL certificate.

Thanks for considering!

Thank you for the suggestion.

This would best be sent to the authors, who maintain the original software in Debian. Details at https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/ssl%2Dcert, and there are instructions on how to file a bug there at https://www.debian.org/Bugs/.
