I'm not sure this will solve the OP's problem. If the FastCGI program saves its state to some global variables between requests, the next request might be from a different user. I think you'll still need to maintain session state that will be tied to a specific user

    True, you'll need to maintain session state yourself. A trivial example (that has plenty of bugs):

    print "<p>Hello, ", $session{$cookie}->{name}, ", welcome back</p>"
    print pack("A25",pack("V*",map{1919242272+$_}(34481450,-49737472,6228,0,-285028276,6979,-1380265972)))
