[mod_python] Configuring Session.Session

At a quick glance I can't see how this may or may not be used by the 
implementation, but isn't it possible to tie cookies to a particular 
within in a domain? If the session was somehow associated with a path, 
the handler root, could different session IDs for different parts of the
documentation tree simply be kept separate by appropriate use of Handler
directive in the root of each separate application context. How does the
existing ApplicationPath option come into this? Never exactly understood
what it did and thought that it was something related to having 
session contexts? Seems to me that this might be better than fudging 
name the session cookie uses.
