Always a good method to follow, but the manual says you can use the
$_SESSION method I gave. There is no need to use session_register() or
the like. I would imagine that the older method would be depreciated
eventually. It's a whole lot easier to just treat sessions like a
variable without that whole register/unregister stuff.

The manual actually cautions against using session_register/unregister
if register_globals is OFF.
