One way would be to just pass CGI::Session the database handle from
Class::DBI and use it normally. You can pass it an open database
handle. You can get the handle from your Class::DBI class by calling

You need something to generate IDs, but sure, after that it could. What
CGI::Session does is take a hash, run it through Storable, and save it
in a simple table. You can do that yourself if you want. I don't see
any reason to bother though, if you like CGI::Session.
