Well, there is a reason to pass both - the method might affect the response,
and it is important to have this clear in the signature instead of having a
side effect.
Also, both Request and Response are available - I see no reason to add an
extra request.getResponse() ( that will be needed since response is allways
used to create a new session)

Also note that a SessionManager needs to use the public methods in

If you need more - you can make more methods public, but with a lot of care
as this will affect the interfaces we'll put on Request/Response.
