[mod_python] The right way to handle sessions

Hello Fabio

Thanks for your input. But that does not work :-(
Try this:
def createSession(req):
     sess = get_session(req)
     return getSameSession(req)

def getSameSession(req):
     sess = get_session(req)
     return "\n%s" % sess.id()

def get_session(req):
	sess = Session.Session(req)
	if sess.is_new():
		sess.save ()
	return sess

Try to store this in a file (index.py) and call index.py/createSection
First time you run it the sid's are going to be different...
Second time you run it - - it will make an infinitive loop (or at least 
mess apache up).

The method only works if you call the two functions:
and after that you call:
Then you get the deserved output.

My question is more: How do you work on sessions across functions - - 
by storing data in the request (req) object or what??
