MySQL 5: Web Session Management with Stored Procs

So, here is an implementation of a web session (cookie based) system using stored procedures:

I was planning on using triggers on the session table to generate updates to the user table (last login time, last access time), however it seems you cant launch a trigger from within a stored procedure. Perhaps. At least, when I tired it, MySQL told me the table was locked for READ, so now the login() and cookie_session() procedures I have written to these updates tot he user table themseleves.

I am sure this is the start of many implementations like this. Yay for stored procs! I was thinking of modifying the cookie_session() proc so that it randomly called the clean_sessions() proc (say, 1% of the time that cookie_session() is called).

Feedback and suggestions welcomed.
