that's a good question... it sounds like it *should* be in there.
which Cookie.py module? i thought there was more than one. the
one i've seen is comprehensive (this may be a reason why it's
not in the cgi module... to keep things small) -- and slightly buggy
-- but it's 3 years old so i assume those bugs have been worked out.
the other reason why it may not be in there is that not everyone uses
cookies in their CGI apps.
