When authenticated user is accessing pages which don't modify the session, the session expiration time (stored both in COOKIE and in backend) isn't updated, so after settings.SESSION_COOKIE_AGE second he will be logged out despite he's been active for all the time. It's not fair :-). I'm aware that I can force to always update expiration time via settings.SESSION_SAVE_EVERY_REQUEST, it's just inefficient to save session data knowing it wasn't modified at all.
My proposition it to allow to change and save session expiration time without touching session data.
