       Jifty::Web::Session - A Jifty session handler


       In your etc/config.yml (optional):

             # The default ($PORT is replaced by the port the app is running on)
             SessionCookieName: JIFTY_SID_$PORT

       Returns a new, empty session.

       Returns the session's id if it has been loaded, or "undef" otherwise.

       Assign a new ID, and store it server-side if necessary.

   load [ID]
       Load up the current session from the given "ID", or the appropriate cookie (see
       "cookie_name") otherwise.  If both of those fail, creates a session in the database.

   load_by_kv key => value
       Load up the current session from the given (key, value) pair. If no matching session could
       be found, it will create a new session with the key, value set.  Be sure that what you're
       loading by is unique. If you're loading a session based on, say, a timestamp, then you're
       asking for trouble.

       Flush the session, and leaves the session object blank.

       Returns true if the session has already been loaded.

   get KEY [TYPE]
       Returns the value for "KEY" for the current user's session.  "TYPE", which defaults to
       "key", allows accessing of other namespaces in the session, including "metadata" and

   set KEY => VALUE, [TYPE]
       Sets the value "VALUE" for "KEY" for the session.  "TYPE", which defaults to "key", allows
       values to be set in other namespaces, including "metadata" and "continuation". "VALUE" can
       be an arbitrary perl data structure -- "Jifty::Web::Session" will serialize it for you.

   remove KEY, [TYPE]
       Remove key "KEY" from the cache.  "TYPE" defaults to "key".

       Removes the session from the database entirely.

   set_continuation ID CONT
       Stores a continuation in the session.

   get_continuation ID
       Pulls a continuation from the current session. Expects a continuation "ID".

   remove_continuation ID
       Removes a continuation with id "ID" from the store.

       Return a hash of all the continuations in this session, keyed by the continuations' "id".

       Sets the session cookie.

       Returns the current session's cookie_name -- it is the same for all users, but varies
       according to the port the server is running on.

   expires [VALUE]
       Get or set the session's expiration date, in a format expected by Cache::Cache.
