What though is the consequence of the session lock not being reacquired.
Ie., what happens if someone wants to modify the session object and save
it after internal redirect returns.

You might save a deadlock by unlocking the session object, but does it
screw up the case of existing code where session is modified and saved
after internal redirect returns.

Am still for leaving things how they are in this respect, we know the
issues involved and probably just need to beef up the documentation with
big warnings so that people are aware of the internal redirect caveat.
