[mod_python] MySQL Session implementation?

Hello to all,

I was wondering if anybody had worked on a clean integration of MySQL  
for session storage in opposition to the default local db file  
mp_session that gets written in /tmp

I have wrote a nice little web based app last year using mod_python  
and now the traffic is so that it is in a load balancing  
configuration, but the LB does not seem to work very well and "stick"  
a specific client to a specific server, which is causing users to get  
logged out of the app.

Anyway, before I decided to start to reinvent the wheel here, I  
thought I would ask, since it seemed to me like the easiest way to  
share the sessions across multiple webapp servers would be to extend  
the mod_python Session class to use a DB connection such as MySQL.

Also, is there a way to rename the python session cookie as of 3.2.8?
