The anonymous user info is stored in the Slash::Apache configuration
table. Correct me if I'm wrong but this is set for good once the server
starts up and initializes the table.
So if you make changes to the preferences to the anonymous user id, they
will not show up until the server restarts, correct? All other users
seem to be grabbed from the database so their changes show up
immediately. I'm guessing the anon user is set in the config table so
database calls don't have to be made if the user is anon, since they
will not likely need to see changes in their setting right away.
