you DON'T want that! It's a major security risk cause sometimes userid's

You don't wnat shared cookies for precisely this reason.

true and the rest could probably be translated to php-code.
You need however a server that is more a webserver/proxy that translations

Any dynamic menu's can be used this way as well.

100% compattiblity will never be reached cause too much things change
