New submission from Florent Xicluna:

from Cookie import SimpleCookie

cookie = SimpleCookie()
cookie[u'apple'] = u'green'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.5/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/Cookie.py", line 592, in __setitem__
    self.__set(key, rval, cval)
  File "/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.5/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/Cookie.py", line 585, in __set
    M.set(key, real_value, coded_value)
  File "/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.5/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/Cookie.py", line 459, in set
    if "" != translate(key, idmap, LegalChars):
  File "/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.5/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/string.py", line 493, in translate
    return s.translate(table, deletions)
TypeError: translate() takes exactly one argument (2 given)

The documentation don't say it's not supported.
And the error TypeError seems not appropriate.
