This is a good point, and points to a very interesting bit of back story. At some point, the Ellis Lab folks were talking about making the CI sessions to be more like PHP sessions (ie., not like a cookie) but it never panned out in time for the book. That's when I decided to add PHP sessions to the discussion, and trying to differentiate between CI and PHP sessions caused kind of a protracted discussoin among the editorial and review folks.....and in all that, somebody should have said, "hey dummy, put session_start() at the first mention, then say you'll explain it later."
