Apache::SessionX extents Apache::Session. It was initialy written to
use Apache::Session from inside of Embperl, but is seems to be
usefull outside of Embperl as well, so here is it as standalone module.

Apache::Session is a persistence framework which is particularly useful
for tracking session data between httpd requests. Apache::Session is
designed to work with Apache and mod_perl, but it should work under
CGI and other web servers, and it also works outside of a web server

Addtionaly to Apache::Session, Apache::SessionX provides the following

- Configuration: Makefile.PL checks which componemnts are installed
on the system and interactivly builds a set of configuration,
including a default one. This configurations are saved and can
be used by name later on. The default configuration is used, if
no parameters are given to Apache::SessionX. This simplifies
the configuration and usage.

- Lazy operation: Apache::SessionX supports lazy operation, that means
that the actual data access only takes place if the session data is
needed, so you are able to setup the session object, without worrying
about performance in case you don't access the session data.

- Specifing the ID: Apache::SessionX can use a given ID instead of
creating it's own one. You can also give an string which is used to
generate the ID

- Genrate unique ID: Apache::SessionX is able to save the session with
an new ID every time data is modified. This make it possible to keep
an history.

- Addtionaly methods are provided to get the ID, the inital ID, the
modified status and to close a session, without destroying the
session object itself.

Additional features like session expiration are partial implemented.



Changes since 2.00b3:

- make test now works without Timer::HiRes installed
- included patch from Robert for iteration over all sessions
- created new class Apache::SessionX::Manager, which is used
to performs actions on multiple sessions. (first, next, count)
(Only File Store currently supports this methods).
- Use Digest::MD5 instead of MD5
