The approach from my blog, which I borrowed from CMSBox, and modified 
slightly to not create a new instance of the root component on each hit, 
does use Sessions, and maintains a single session for the duration; it's 
just in the cookie rather than the URL.

It just doesn't use callbacks for navigation most of the time, I 
generate anchors with URL's that are parsed by the root component on 
each hit to load the correct content.  But you can use callbacks 
whenever you want as it does in the pagers in the search results.
