Right, that's my point.  Your module has overlap with them in terms of 
managing cookies and specifying locations, but adds the actual calls to 
Apache::Session.  If I were doing something like this, I would probably 
start with one of the Auth modules, which already do a good job of 
handling things like cookie verification and even cookie-less sessions, 
and add the actual Apache::Session glue.

It might at least be worth stealing some code from the other modules, 
like the ticket-based cookies idea, but of course you can do what you 
like.  I think it's good to have a module like this, and if you put 
yours out there people can contribute to it.  Incidentally there is also 
a session manager module very similar to this in the Extropia modules.

The Apache::Auth modules also support that.
