[mod_python] Session Tracking

I use the following trick to use the standard Cookie class in mod_python:

req.headers_out.add('Set-Cookie', cookies.output(header='',

By omitting the first header, and setting the "separator" to "Set-Cookie:' it
actually may add more than just one header here, but who cares...

Actually, I feel that Cookie should provide some method of access to the
individual cookie strings. And a Request.add_cookies(...) method would be even
better (mod_python 3.0.5?):

cookies = Cookie.SmartCookie()
