I wrote a session manager for my project dubbed Python.ASP. (It is an ASP
like but far more powerfull active server page framework using python as the
scripting language.) The session manager uses a hybrid cookie/url mechanism
to pass a session id which is used to store and retrieve the database backed
session data. It also performs robot detection. The project is finished but
I won't have time to document it, write an installation procedure and
release it for some time. The session module is somewhat difficult to lift
out of the ASP framework, but if you want to take a look at the code,
contact me by mail and I'll send it to you.
