http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionControlle... This cookie-based session store is the Rails default. Sessions typically contain at most a user_id and flash message; both fit within the 4K cookie size limit. Cookie-based sessions are dramatically faster than the alternatives.

Thanks you two. I'd found the 4kb limit, but wasn't sure how that would come out in real-world usage - i.e., does Rails use up some of that space on its own, would the use of a secret and hash affect that... I also forgot to mention that I'm using Authlogic, which I believe would also take up some space.
