Yes, a session-based auth would be something we should really add.

Like Marc I'm using the standard php4 sessions for years (or maybe 
months), but it seems that Loic don't like them because they are buggy, 
so we could maybe  use an home-made session system? This is not an 
hard thing: it would just require a mysql table.
(id, session_id, username, db, passwd, ip, expiration, timestamp) 

Another argument for an home-made solution is that is would still
work under php3...

I think it should still work even if the browser has turned of the cookies
support -> so we would nearly have to keep the session_id in every url or
post request.
