[geeklog-devel] New Plugin Wish

I just ran across an issue that it would be nice for Geeklog 2 to address.  
Tony I imagine that this should be taken in to account in session 

It would be nice to have a simple way to pass state information.  HTTP being 
a stateless protocol we have to resort to either cookies or passing 
everything as post or get variables or some such mechanism.  I am against 
plugins/addons adding extra cookies and from a security and aesthetic 
standpoint do not like to use get variables unless necessary.  Plugins can 
do this on their own by using the database for a scratch area, but this then 
requires another database access for each plugin.

Just a thought that if implemented could make programming plugins easier and 
more secure.
