4.7 Cookie - HTTP State Management
The Cookie module provides convenient ways for creating,
parsing, sending and receiving HTTP Cookies, as defined in the
specification published by Netscape.
Even though there are official IETF RFC's describing HTTP State
Management Mechanism using cookies, the de facto standard supported
by most browsers is the original Netscape specification.
Furthermore, true compliance with IETF standards is actually
incompatible with many popular browsers, even those that claim to be
RFC-compliant. Therefore, this module supports the current common
practice, and is not fully RFC compliant.
