(Just a side note: Matt Palmer's patches are classic example of what shouldn't be done in nginx. He uses blocking remote memcached calls, and this is something one shouldn't even think about as this will block the whole nginx worker and all clients.)
On another note, there is session tickets in files now implemented that can be distributed. Sessions however are different.
