What is the reason for delayload=False in the FileCookieJar.__init__
function?  It doesn't seem to be used in any of the code that ships
with python2.4, and it seems to directly contradict the comment
following it

        Cookies are NOT loaded from the named file until either
the .load() or
        .revert() method is called.


which sounds like exactly the opposite the delayload=False default.
