There was discussion in far away past, which lead to consensus that we 
can not use sessions until they're natively in PHP. As you can see, it 
was in times of PHP 3 :-).

In fact sessions could solve lot of problems with redirects and large 
SQL queries we have, however nobody has yet implemented that.

If you're going to implement this, do not forget that sessions should 
work also without cookies enabled.
