The session data is no more or less readable with a permanent cookie than
it is with what you have now, except that it survives closing the browser.
So as Josh mentioned, if someone logs in at a public computer at a
library, school, Internet cafe, etc., it'll be logged into their account
until the session expires. You have to figure out what the security
implications of that are for your site -- there's no one right answer
about what you should do there.
