The session ID draft uses very long collision resistant hashes to
create the session id. Normally one would not expect to see a duplicate
session ID until 2^64 had been generated, or fout billion ids for each 
person on the planet. Since 2^64 is the largest memory address space 
currently in standard use I don't think the theoretical possibility of
error is significant.
