Sessions represent one "connection" to the server, even that isn't
quite true... they are basically just a single path from a user to the
server.  Any user might have multiple sessions, one from a desktop/GUI,
one from a shell login, one at home, work, web browser, etc... they all
would go back to one server.

Right now, it depends on the <priority>#</priority> tag sent in the first
status update to the server, a higher priority number on that session will
recieve any messages that didn't have a specific nickanme in the to
address... this is all a bit vague yet, but I hope to clear it up when I
write up the client guidelines(this week I hope, tonight if possible).

Hope that helps!
