I guess, what I'm really trying to get across, is that all this writing and
rewriting and deleting of cookies is rather wasteful. Write a cookie once to
"brand the browser", and then leave it alone. You can implement any policy you
want regarding authentication, session timeout, convenience, and so on, once
you branded the browser.
