By the way, most of the things talked about there *have* been done in one
place or another -- though almost always as part of a custom site solution
for big sites that do such things as "proprietary trade secrets".

Most cases I've seen bury the fact that its being done by using the first x
bytes of the cookie to determine session affinity and not using something so
obvious as www1:asdf -- the reason they do this isn't to encrypt data, but
to keep their competitors to figure out how they get better performance. :)
