Petr they don't scale well. But if you aren't writing something on the scale
of E-bay, or expecting that level of load, or having your app working on
multiple server in a webfarm then you're probably aren't going to run into
trouble using sessions. I didn't mean to scare you off using simple session
state tracking, but if you can design your webapp to be as stateless as
possible then you know you could grow it to the that E-bay scale one day.
