R: [mod_python] session.last_accessed() ?

I'm using session since 5 month in production environment without problem
as follow:

1) login   ---> new session,timeout=xxx
2) for any other access from this user I tested is_new() that become tru
only for timeout expired or 
restart of apache (or ... bug in our programs). So the only message to the
user is : timeout expired

why the need to distinguish from new and expired?

I started to add my own time stamp and then realized that even that
won't solve my original problem.  

What I really want to know if whether a new session object was created
because (1) there was never a session for this client before or (2) the
previous session has since expired.  I can tell if a session object is
new thanks to the is_new() method but not whether an old session
expired.  If I know then I can tell the client user why they have to
login again (e.g. the session expired).
