See the getCookies() method in :


This is from Jetty (http://jetty.mortbay.org/jetty/index.html), a
pretty nice HTTP server written in 100% Java, with nearly 7 years of

The code uses the $version header if available as front attribute.
Other front attributes are ignored. The $path and $domain attributes
are parsed and applied to the rightmost preceding cookie. Other
attributes are just ignored

So judging from Jetty's implementation, this new parsing function does the job.

If you're OK with it I'll commit it in Subversion.
