I've googled but not found this, trying to do cookie example from docs.  The
output is always of type <type 'str'> and is the cookie name.  How do I get

def makecookie(req):
    c = Cookie.MarshalCookie('spam', 'eggs', 'secret007')
    d = Cookie.MarshalCookie('xxxx', 'yyy', 'secret007')
    Cookie.add_cookie(req, c)
    Cookie.add_cookie(req, d)
    return 'cookie made'

def showcookies(req):
    cookies = Cookie.get_cookies(req, Cookie.MarshalCookie,
    s = 'There are %s cookies'% len(cookies)
    for c in cookies:
        s += '\n%s %s' % (str(c), type(c))
    return s
