(I can only agree to what Michal said - it's only not implemented because nobody
got down to do it)

There is also a problem about which Marc and I talked in the past. We should not
store sensitive information like passwords in sessions, as usually all session
data can be accessed from untrusted users on the same webserver, as session
files are readable for everyone usually.

Also we need to think about what bad can happen when someone hijacks your
session id, or uses session fixation.
