Splendid! As long as most of session.el's capabilities are preserved.

What I am missing is a means to "edit" the saved data, remove items particularly. My session-save-file(s, for different Emacs versions/ kinds) have a tendency to grow. A simple mechanism based of time stamps or a maximal number of items does not seem to be right. Some configure or compile invocations are used again after years. Some such invocations were for tests and really are not worth saving them, well, say, longer than a week, or a month. A means of cleaning seems to be necessary.

Also the point in a buffer is saved. This is an information that is often useless for me, or worse: the end of the buffer, when I left the file after a compare-windows. I would like to see the point at the beginning next time I open the file. To be ready for a new comparison. I setting might enable new session.el to convert point- max to point-min.
