someone tried that during the SRS workshop at the EBI last week and it
seem to work. In priniciple one must open a session clicking on the start
button on the start page which creates a new session, get the ID by
searching it in the source
of the next HTML page and use that to create a wgetz call like

wgetz -id userID [embl-id:...]

in principle this query should be registered in the query history but for
some reason it isn't ...sorry
will follow this up and fix it.
Another improvement will be to do a call like
wgetz -start -returnId

that creates a new session and returns only the new userID
