in regards ot the "OO v. Functions", where you asked about 
a session handler class... i have written a class that handles
sessions, although i dont know if it's exactly what you're
looking for, you might want to give it a peek.

since i am a big fan of code reuse, i must include my
DB abstraction "db.php" and error handler code "main.php",
becuase the session class relys on functions contained in
those two files.

i have taken a different view on the idea of handling 
sessions... the session handler is simple, yet powerful.
there's no registering of global variables or any
of that nonsense.  there's a simple assoc. array that
holds all of the data of the session, which, IMO, is a
much more sensible way to store/retrieve information
than using global variables.

having all your session data concentrated into the
$session->data[] array makes things neat and elegant IMO.

I am still making updates to the session class.
currently, there's no way to specifically end a session
other than "undef $session"... i am going to add support
for auto-saving information when the $session class
is destroyed, and a few other bells-and-whistles to
make it even easier to use.

//to start up the session:
// init_session is a wrapper function that sets up
// the session properly (looks for a valid 'sid' cookie)
$session = init_session();
// $session is now an object.

// to set a 'session' variable:
$session->data['something'] = "someone"
// to count how many times this session was loaded

// to save the $session->data[] array to the DB

// and if you use authentication on your site, and want
// to quickly remember a user's name, you can attach a
// username to the session with:

basically, put these all in the same dir, and run test.php
