Hmm... this could cause problems in some circumstances; possibly a
configuration option could introduce a switch for whether or not
cookies were considered to make an object uncacheable? I'd also like
to specifically eliminate cookies from some commercial sites (e.g.,
doubleclick), ones for non-text pages, and ones not specific to the
host from which the cookie came; this is to reduce spam directed at
our users.
