session support should be left on php.ini side.
No, it shouldn't, not for the vast majority of Wedge users. There are multiple very good reasons for leaving it how it is in the core, i.e. using MySQL.
sessions in MySQL are not that performant e.g. for boards with lot of members online at the same time. now with 7000 and more users online there's no problem since we're using Memcached.
Make it a memory table, then see how performant it is.
Ensiferous did it for SMF by only replacing a view lines in Load.php:
Yes, I know that. Except that doesn't actually push sessions over to memcache, you have to specifically reconfigure other things to do that. (I'm the one who approved the mod, which means I had to test it. Which means I had to actually configure it, hence my statement about it being a pain in the arse.)
Here's the crunch point: the time I spend on implementing that (which, if I use Ensi's code means I legally have to ask him about it, I can't just reuse it, or I spend time rewriting it from scratch), including debugging and configuration and so on, is time I'm not spending on things that more than 0.0001% users are ever going to see, and to be honest both Nao and I have more important things to do than cater to an utter minority of users.
So again, this is going to be something we tackle as a plugin rather than a core feature because I'm not building something in that affects a tiny group of users into the core, especially as it will encourage them to expect support for something that I'm not really qualified to provide support for.
