Yes, I looked up the only reference to HttpSession I could find in 
Cayenne's api and found the session-specific context config.  I don't 
know how well you know Cayenne (I don't at all) but are you sure you 
need this feature?  Is your config really different for each unique session?

Second, if they are just using the Session as a unique key, I think they 
would be open to the more general-use suggestion of using an Object as 
key passed in instead of requiring an HttpSession for the same basic 
reason we have abstracted our environment in Cocoon.  Couldn't Cayenne 
users want this feature in other environments besides webapp?
