[idea up for grabs] cookie parsing tests

Hi all!

Ivan Nikulin posted a comparison about how different browsers parse and
implement cookies at (he found quite
a few cases where they act differently from each other and from the spec)

To do that, he used the test suite made for RFC 6265 by Adam Barth that is
available at

Unfortunately, curl was not included in the tests.

It'd be really awesome if someone would write a script/setup that would run
curl with that test suite and detect deviances. Ideally, that would even be
incorporated into our regular test suite.
