I may be wrong about that. I know it is common practice. As far I know
HTTP cookies are also a can or jar of worm in the sense they are
relatively complex to configure correctly. Again I do not know
all-the-things.

While writing a pre-srfi, I figured if we support cookies as part of
the request, we also need to support them as part of the response,
which somewhat complicates things.
