Ah, I didn't realize that PSP would adopt any session in req.session. I
had thought it would always create a new session object if 'session' was
referenced in the template.  The idea of passing the session object in
manually and being barred from using the variable name 'session' was
unappealing to me. Since that's not the case, I have no remaining
objections. Thanks for sharing the magic.
