They are if and only if the browser sends back the same cookie as last
time.  I don't think I understand what you're getting at.

Can you be more specific?

Why should they get saved in there?  Firstly, this is Python, not IE, that
you're programming.  Secondly, you're talking about the server end of the
cookie protocol, and it's the client's responsibility to save cookies --
that's the whole point!

Am I misunderstanding you?
