Right-o, I've seen that feature before. Maybe create_session_id()
should grow a prefix argument, and for now it'll be up to the glue code
to provide that. It's really a configuration parameter. Though I
suppose you could turn the SERVER_ADDR into a 8-byte code, which would
probably identify the proper server. Or maybe you should pick it up
from an environmental variable... bah, it'll only be clear in the
context of a specific environment and configuration.

That would certainly be well implemented by middleware.
