Please feel free to add this functionality. The reason that WACookie
doesn't provide this functionality could be that nobody needed it ;-)

I never felt the need to use a cookie during 4 years of Seaside
experience. After all Seaside provides much nicer ways to remember
information between request than to use cookies. The only thing I can
think of were cookies could be useful are for evil things like
tracking people visiting the site.
