more explicit docs on client side sessions vs server side sessions (and how to implement server-side sessions)

recent mailing list discussion: http://flask.pocoo.org/mailinglist/archive/2012/3/1/is-it-wise-for-flask-to-store-session-variables-on-the-client/
unhappy feedback: http://feedback.flask.pocoo.org/message/223

What are more explicit docs on client side vs. server side sessions explain? Especially considering that in general you don't want server-side sessions anyway and if you do, you'll notice.

I think the best fix is to add a sentence to the quickstart's section on sessions saying that if you want to handle sessions server-side rather than client-side, there are several Flask extensions that support this. I wouldn't link directly to a single extension, as extensions come and go. Mostly we just want to make folks reading the quickstart to be aware of the existence of server-side sessions / flask extensions, and then they can google to learn more...

@dawran6 Not a big deal, but just FYI typically you just link to the PR, not a specific commit hash, as the individual commit may change based on feedback, resulting in a different hash for the newest version. Plus, when you force-push to the PR branch that particular commit link is broken. You can link to a PR with #34 or whatever number it is and GH will auto-link it.

Is there a reason that this issue is still open?
