I'm thinking nsICookieManager2 is where this should live.  See the dependencies
for a couple of places where this would be used.

yeap... do you wanna implement this?

(please do the UI concurrently though, we don't want a bloaty method hanging
around with no consumers)

darin raised a good point, if we're going to clear session cookies when Mozilla
still thinks there's an active session for memory cache/SSL connections, we
could break some sites that rely on a session being more than just a cookie. 
(i.e. if the SSL session coexists with a secure cookie, does clearing the cookie
have adverse effects on that too?)

At this stage of "sustained Seamonkey developement" I don't think its really
viable/desired to put a lot of work into implementing something that's
seamonkey-specific.  However, for Firefox it might be useful to have Work
Offline clear all session data, I need to get feedback from ben on whether
that's needed/desired.  So, I'm going to leave this out there because I can see
viable uses for it, but I don't think we'll end up implementing anything using
it in seamonkey.

(and yes, I'm going to do it myself or I wouldn't have filed it on myself.)

Not going to be working on any Seamonkey UI bugs for the foreseeable future.
