Inside Johnny it should work. Though it does not seem to be a big problem to make Johnny to support sessions created in Johnny. Problem is with sessions from regular john. Though we could use wrapper that alters john's behaviour to be compatible with johnny. But it does not help with old sessions and sessions created by mistake without wrapper.
