The AxS::Session module looks completely promising!  I have been
imagining extending it to use the AIS single-sign-on system.  Some
kind of persistence framework needs to be available though, for
storing data by session-ID.  Which also would give a better way
to handle POST data when someone with no session submits some.

For what it's worth I've set myself to implementing a CGI program that
