comment Do server-side sessions violate REST?
Accepting this as the answer, despite the other great answers, mostly because it answers the question directly and gives a very clear example. Also, the second portion on view objects tipped the scales.

comment Do server-side sessions violate REST?
I think it should be noted there's a distinction between application state and resource state (the Google index would be resource state, and is perfectly legitimate). I should make that more clear in the question.
