Ah. Perhaps then you simply need to pass in the session object to the
template and then the link template can encode that in the URL.

If you pass in session as an attribute than any template enclosed in
your page can see that attribute through dynamic scoping. your
template could be
blog_post(m,d,y) ::= "/y/m/d&sessionid=<session.ID>"
or whatever the field of the session is. would that work?
