Yeah, it is tempting to think that the solution is as easy as building a 
stack on the server-side of visited pages, but it just doesn't work due 
to the back button, and the ability to open multiple browsers in the 
same session.  Sure, you could do some Javascript stuff to force the 
issue, but that, of course, has its own problems.  Better to devise a 
system that allows you to track flows, yet lets the user continue to use 
the back button or multiple browser windows.  Continuations is one way 
to solve that, but that's another discussion :)
