 The next commits fixes that in a safer way.
You have to set one unique data per input, and then you can set through the
mrl a cookie (a string). It's then up to you to properly store a
cookie<->data_per_es mapping inside the global data pointer. You need to be
robust against invalid cookie to avoid security risks.
