In Perl 5, CGI::Session is one solution that feels this gap well.
In frameworks like CGI::Application, sessions can be integrated so they
are apart of the of the same object anyway:
self.query <-- CGI.pm object
self.session <-- CGI::Session object.
As far as I'm aware, no work on CGI::Session for Perl 6 has started yet.
I'm sure there will be some things that would be nice to change about it
as well, as it currently has some features only for backwards
