The Client API and ScrapBook: Domain session method?

Hi. I'm the author of the ljlogin Firefox extension, which uses the client API protocol to allow for conveniently logging into/out of LJ accounts. Unfortunately, the session cookie provided by the protocol isn't sufficient to make ScrapBook believe that you're logged in. I've already written down my notes on investigating this once, so I may as well just link it rather than hashing it out again.

Is there any chance that LJ's client protocol could acquire a method for generating a domain session cookie based on a master session, that could be used to generate the cookie ScrapBook cares to see?
