Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
I'm putting Drupal onto a high traffic site and I'm concerned with the scalability of the anonymous sessions. I asked about disabling the sessions in #drupal on freenode and there was interest in the solution, but no one had done it before, so I'm bringing the question here.
A lot of the modules (both built in and 3rd party like CCK) use $_SESSION, but it looks like that is only for administration forms or functions that a user will have to be logged in to use anyway. includes/session.inc specifically mentions the throttle module and the "Who's Online" block - both of which I won't be using, so I don't see anything that jumps out at me as requiring an anonymous session and yet I don't see a way to disable it.
This is inspired from my forum topic on the same subject: http://drupal.org/node/183006
