So you're planning on keeping the results of *every* query *ever* done?
I hope you have a budget for infinite disk.

And if so, you *do* want the session number in there, so that the results
are referring to *that* session.

I'm sorry that you haven't made your goals clear to me.  I'm working
across purposes because I don't get your point.
