Just to comment.  The pathargs module in the standbox will help with
some of these things.   It uses a colon in the path item to signify
key/value pairs.

The pathargs is generic so that *other* parameters can go there,
perhaps a client identifier, etc.


The advantage of doing it this way, is that the person can copy/paste
the URL and send it to his friend.  Since in the background you
timeout session ids, and link it with a given ip address, you can 
present this person with a login-page, but yet keep the same
client/report identifier.    

Anyway, pathargs is very useful for maintaining state information
when you are using relative links without cookies.
