In this case, the problem is really not the language but the Web itself.
Preserving the state of an ongoing transaction in a secure and tamper-proof
manner is a thorny problem regardless of language -- and it has gotten
people to restrict them or turn them off. Absent a default solution that's
already been honed for security, programmers will tend to cut corners or
will have to learn security basics from scratch -- the hard way.
