I'm looking forward to seeing the book!

Got a question, that is almost relevant to the thread.  Does anybody know 
why cookie support isn't built in to the cgi module?  I had to dig around to 
find Cookie.py, which (excellent module that it is) should be in the cgi 
package somewhere.

Just a random thought from the middle of my workday...
