 Another problem with this is that UNIQUE_ID is unique
 to the *request*, not to the 'session.'  If you have a page
 with several images on it, each will be fetched using a
 different request, and each such request will get a different
 UNIQUE_ID value.  You *are* proposing that UNIQUE_ID be used
 as a key to maintain state across several requests, right?
 Or have I misunderstood?
