Hi Gabriel,
I've written a mod_perl module that does what you want.
Apache::SessionManager - an Apache mod_perl module to manage HTTP sessions.
Apache::SessionManager is a mod_perl module that helps
session management of a web application. This simple module is a
wrapper around Apache::Session persistence framework for session data.
It creates a session object and makes it available to all other handlers
transparenlty by putting it in pnotes.

You can download it from CPAN:

See perldoc Apache::SessionManager for more details.

The current version is 0.02 but I will put 0.03 today to CPAN (there's support to 
all cookies attributes customization and a support to mod_backhand 
cookie-based load balancing).
