Pylons makes it easy to add/remove/change the way sessions are done, this is
one of the reasons I like it so much - nearly everything is easy to disable
or replace.

Don't want sessions? You don't have to include them in Pylons.

Want to store them only in a encrypted cookie or only on disk or only in a
RDMBS?  no problem.

Want to store sessions in Cassandra (which if you use them, I imagine you
do)?  It's simple enough to add that, the main part you have to write is the
storage and retrieval to/from Cassandra - the rest is basically a small bit
of config that says "use this other thing for storing sessions"
