If I was you, I would be adapting the software to run with current 
CGI::Session (4). The last release of the 3.x series is from 2003 and 
as far as I see, upstream doesn't seem to support a separate branch. 
The last Debian release with 3.x was sarge.


Alternatively, a tiny emulation module may be appropriate too.
