Is the Azure solution in Orchard configured to support (serialized?) HTTP sessions in Azure out of the box, or do we need to manually configure it?

Currently Orchard doesn't use any session information, so we never configured it for Azure. Though I am assuming this must be as simple as using the SQL db to store the session state, using the web.config.

What do you think about it ?

There is at least the logged-in user, or is that automatically managed by the FormsAuthentication service?

Yes, that's managed by forms auth. The authentication headers are not the same as the session cookie.
