There is no event listener that is fired when a session is accessed (i.e.
the session id cookie, or the URL-encoded path parameter, is included on
a request).

An easy way to detect this situation would be to write a Filter that was
mapped to all requests ("/*") and just noted whether a session id was
included or not.  The filter could fire off whatever sort of notification
that your application required.
