I know you've requested it be moved to a Kit a few times Chuck. The
reason I haven't moved it is because in it's current state it is not
possible to move. Application, Session and Request all inherit from a
mixin class, CanContainer. Page.py and Servlet.py each have member
functions that are used in the Can architecture. To pull it out, if it
can be pulled out, wil at least require a complete redesign. Since
there's some interest in the topic, I'll be getting to it soon.
However, it still may not be possible to abstract this into something
that can be separated cleanly from the rest of WebKit. And I would
argue that it doesn't have to be. It adds no overhead and the whole
thing is probably less than 100 lines of code. Some things should just
be included in the main system. We aren't going to split session
management out into a SessionKit. Ya know?
