what is the logic behind requiring the header?

for example, to avoid using cookies and yet ensuring security, we pass a
loginkey for all pages.

every page has
which parses the loginkey, uncompresses/decode it to get the userid and
timestamp, and prompts for a login if the last access was too old (say 10 min).

the security check displays the login screen if no key is available or key is
expired, and exits, preventing display of the remainder of the page

ifthe key is valid, it updates the key for the current time (reset the expire
counter so to speak) and displays the page iwth all URL's conyaining the encoded

you end up with one additional line of code per page (which we include as part
of site template)

unless you are looking for something else entirely and I am missing the point
(entirely possible).
