I'm not sure if this is a good example - req.form is something specific to 
the publisher. Rather than perhaps documenting it as you suggest, 
util.FieldStorage can take it upon itself to create a req.form so that 
subsequent attempts to instantiate it just return req.form. (This is just 
an example, I'm not 100% sure that I having FS do this makes sense - seems 
like a good idea).

OR, the Session module would know to look for a req.session, in which case 
the handlers wouldn't need to worry about it.

(One thing to watch out for would be that mutliple concurrent sessions in 
the same request is a possibility)
