Maybe I'm missing something here, but couldn't session information be
created when the user is authenticated. IOW, if the user is authenticated,
included in the XML response would be the user's information. The receptor
(could be any language) takes that info, parses it, and then creates its
own session information.

When another language needs to access the session info, it won't be there,
and the user would be re-authenticated(we'd probably still want to do
something so that the username and password can be extracted from an
encrypted cookie or something), and that language would then create its
own session variables.
