In an ideal world all
session mgmt and user authentication would be application level with high granularity - down to each page or function call
from the client, every time a request arrives. I know of no current solution, Perl or otherwise, that solves this completely.
Would love to see one though.

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
