This has been discussed on the list before, and even I think just last 
week (so check the archives, using "server variables asp" as your search 
criteria).  Some theories suggest that it would entail a lot of 
overhead, unless you only have a few users to keep track of 
simultaneously.  Possible suggestions are

1) if the data doesn't change, put it into an includefile
2) if the data is dynamic, be clever and implement this yourself with 
database-managed persistence (but beware the overhead).
