As a shameless plug, the new session manager I wrote (which we're using internally in our
Tomcat cloud) does this just fine because it doesn't care about contexts or IP addresses or
anything like that. If the session manager is configured to connect to the same exchanges
and RabbitMQ server as other Tomcat instances, the sessions will be shared.

Code is on GitHub:

Downside is it requires another component (RabbitMQ).
