yes, correct, well I stated it totally wrong, sorry :-/  what I was
saying is that we can't take control *over* the session engine
underneath, replace it, nor I would like to even if we could (think
about the complexity of cluster-driven app servers and the like)

it will be nice if the flow could wrap around the session objects and
provide a way to add hooks to the sessione events and this simply with
using the servlet API.

that would keep up honest and happy.
