[Seaside] Adding domain to a cookie

Well, cookies (if they worked properly) would be great for session
tracking, because without them one could copy the URL and paste it on
another machine to keep on working, which is a bit of a security risk,
for instance I can use my cell phone camera to take a pic of someone's
desktop, and type the same URL in my browser. I use session protector
for our app, but it's a tad useless in today's world full of networks
NAT'ed behind a single IP.

Believe me, if I needed it, I would, but it's not an itch I need to
nor have time to at the moment.  I've never felt the need to use a
either, I was just pointing it out so Vince didn't waste any time
for a feature that didn't exist.
