Exactly the opposite! You’re not using the session mechanism for
much of anything and it’s not working properly. What other effect
than a positive one could eliminating sessions have? AuthenCookie
tamper-proofs the cookie and you can store a cart owner in the
cart data so you can auth-check it; presto, no session necessary.
