I'm a little biased :) but I am still interested.

 From a practical angle, Paul's patch makes session-based applications 
usable with databases that have more expensive writes (SQLite being a 
key example). Without this feature, we saw the server's performance 
crater when a moderate number (100's) of requests were made in a short 
period of time.

 From a technical angle, it doesn't make sense to me that every request 
results in a write to the database when using mod_session_dbd. As it 
stands now, I don't feel like mod_session is production-ready when 
combined with a SQLite backend.

 From an emotional angle, Paul has been patiently pinging the list with 
no response for two months now. Surely he deserves some reply, even if 
it's just an explanation of why there is no interest in the feature? It 
feels like mod_session and friends need some love.
