Progress with C-Script

My for edutainment purposes Apache module, mod_cscript is slowly taking shape as I find the odd bit of free time for it. I moved from using cookie sessions to using mod_session_dbd, but I still need to investigate a simple but robust method for serialising data to a session - something like structs rather than simple string key / value pairs. Ideally I'd like to be able to have some kind of individual domin per "page" so that each web page in a C-Script app could have its own set of stateful variables.

I've decided that in order to drive development of C-Script I'm going to develop a simple web "app" with it, along the lines of having user login and maintenance and some simple manipulation of paginated tables.

I have to say that I've found the process of developing a module using Apaches portable runtime (APR) and using other "standard" modules, at times challenging but certainly interesting. While there is ample API documentation, sometimes information on just how the API is intended to be used can be a little thin on the ground...
