I'm not sure I ever said how I clean up the associated objects, but my 
preference is to have an automated process remove them when they haven't 
been touched for N amount of time, and set the cookie expiration so it 
expires before that N is elapsed.  Or actually, I set the cookie to expire 
after N, and do the cleanup at time N+M.
