FWIW, the URL rewriter in PSA::Request::CGI handles generating the
'correct' next URI based on whether a cookie was received.  ie, if there
was no cookie received for this request then make damned sure the SID is
in the next URI.  If you are looking at moving over a similar feature to
Catalyst, it might be worth checking that you're covering the same cases
as that code.
