the current implementation is not able to merge sessions. 
the uuid values used for identifying the apps to connect them up again,
are maintaned by the applications. and for this feature to work, the
sessionmanager would need to be able to change them while the session is
still stored.

we have some options but these clobber the simplicity a bit.
iE we could mandate that the uuid is a commandline argument. 

how we can solve this is up for discussion.
