The main idea is to remember one's preferences on the settings page. This is useful if we access trac from various computers, we won't have to re-enter our own settings.

It could also be useful to automagicaly enter our e-mail on ticket's CC, if we make that a default behaviour on a possible future setting on the settings page. For example on the settings page we could have a setting like Be informed of own tickets changes. We could make a link available on every wiki page, like subscribe/unsubscribe this page for changes and automaticly be emailed every time that page changes.

And it would also lead to other great features, that anyone can add here.

The user table would also be a great place to keep our encrypted password, instead of a file. This way we could also have the cookie to only store something like remember my login on our personal computer, this way we could discard the cookie, some people just don't like cookies.

This ticket is too vague, and it would be more appropriate to put the content on WildIdeas or FeatureRequests. User sessions and preferences are already kept in the database as of 0.8. While there may not be many preferences on the settings screen yet, some preferences are managed from the locations where they are actually of interest (such as the options for diff display). Others will emerge as necessary.

If you want features like subscribing to pages or always getting notified of changes to tickets you've submitted or touched, file separate enhancement requests for those.

The comment on login is a totally separate issue. See #791 for a discussion on the problems and proposed solutions.

PS: no need to replicate the summary in the keywords.
