i've been thinking about this (because of the coroutine/sessions functionality
in the CVS version of Xavante), but don't have a definitive answer.
it's easy to set an expiration time on a cookie; but it's not so easy to clean
old sessions when the user doesn't return. i plan to (eventually) include an
expiration time on the session record, and every now and then traverse the
table and just purge the old records.
