web2py uses it cookie too but probably it would not take much to port
it to cookielib. It would be great if you could provide an example of
usage of cookielib.Cookie vs cookie.SimpleCookie. In particular, I
cannot find any example of how to serialize a cookielib.Cookie into
the corresponding http header entry.
