Uh-uh.... It has an option to _exclude_ an application from session 
management, but there is no way to tell it I want to _start_ a specific 
application.  I could just add it to the auto-start menu, but I don't 
_always_ want it to start.

Ah.  That isn't remotely explained in the associated help.  There's an 
implication that the Save Session option should always be there.   It doesn't 
seem helpful - you don't appear to be able to tell it _which_ saved session 
to restore.  Isn't this behavior exactly what you would get with:
 On Login Restore Session: yes/no
 On Logout Save Session: yes/no
except that you would have to logout to effect the "Save Session"?
