Suppose you wanted to point to somewhere in one of these applications,
for example /login/Login.po. You wouldn't know what session ID to tack
on (it would not have been generated yet). To work around this you could
use a previous idea, where the session id starts with a unique string.
Then you can tell if there is an id present or not. Then for any 
incomming URL like "/login/Login.po", a new session would be generated,
then return a redirect response to "/SID123456789/login/Login.po".

All the urls in the app are relative. No rewriting is needed.
You can bookmark pages and come back later (because the number-does-not
exist case is handled the same as the no-number case).

Like I said before, this would require changes to the PresentationManager,
and the SessionManager, so it's non trivial. How much demand/need for
not using cookies is there out there? The query-string idea can be 
implemented as a new SessionManager which can be swapped in when desired,
but to implement the url-prefix idea would require (it seems) changes 
to the framework that would tie together the SessionManager, 
PresentationManager and HttpRequest objects....
