Sharing sessions between users; Multiple sessions per user

Hello all,

I’ve been looking around a bit, but having no luck.

Before I get started I wanted to find out if anybody else has considered/created an app that either let two users access the same session at once and/or to have multiple sessions for a single user.

I’m going to use memcached as the session storage if that would make a difference to anybody, though I’d like to hear what anybody has to say.

Thank You,
Collin

I don't think there is an easier way to do this besides disabling browser cookies
support and sharing _session_id value between users ... and (shameless plug)
my No-Cookie Session Support plugin can help in this respect.

With cookies disabled the session key can be passed around in the URL to maintain
session persistence. You could have what you want by,

1. copy the URL (with session key) and send it to the second user.
2. get multiple sessions with every new browser (window or tab) request.
