I hope there is in Imp5/Horde4

Debug logging showed me that the function is called 5 times when I log in
and 2 times when I log out. That causes unnecessary overhead for the
database with user informations (different from horde DB).

Do you have an idea how could I store this at least to session data?  I
would of course prefer this only to be called when identities are
managed (which includes first login I hope).
