I'm gonna bring this back on list, because this has become a FAQ.  
"Deprecated" was a poor choice of words.  What I meant was something 
like "there are lots of things that you used to have to subclass 
session for that you don't anymore, and this is good".  However, it's 
become clear that there are still things (like storing database 
transactions) that subclassing session seems to be the best solution 
for, and I don't want people to jump through hoops to avoid doing so.  
All I want is that we pay attention to what things like this come up, 
so that we can try to factor them out in future versions and keep the 
number of session subclasses to a minimum.
