Hi Esteban,

OK the "problem" I told you in below email is easily changing
WAQueryFieldAndCookieTrackingStrategy >> sessionsSeparator
to use $&  instead.

Now Philip answered me that in 3.1 WAHandlerTrackingStrategy is only used
for session tracking, which "solves" another of my questions.

So... I think you are ready to take a look if you want to.

Feedback is welcome!
