I don't think it's a good idea.   The end-developer may not want a
session created.   Is it reasonable to assume that a thread-local
variable could be used instead since the same thread will continue
processing the request?   I'm not really an expert on servlets or
thread-local variables, so consider this more of a -0 than  a -1.

And if we do handle messages like this, I'd like to see us also handle
saveState behavior like this as well.   I suppose we might need a
"preserveAcrossRedirect" attribute set on saveState to insure we
support the existing behavior in case someone is counting on redirects
to fail to saveState.
