GCLI cookie command should use internal Cookie API rather than document.cookie

(1 file, 3 obsolete files)

1. go to
2. cookie list (see WT_FPC cookie and possibly others)
3. cookie remove WT_FPC
4. cookie list

Expected: no WT_FPC cookie listed
Result: WT_FPC cookie lives on (at least in the list!)
This is half expected, because cookies are like that. Really we should be using the official cookie API.
Summary: [toolbar] [gcli] cookie remove command does not appear to remove the cookie → GCLI cookie command should use internal Cookie API rather than document.cookie
Target Milestone: --- → Future
There's lots of potential to be smarter if we're using the official API:

>> cookie list --on-domain

(lists cookies from whatever page you're currently on)

>> cookie edit WT_FPC some-value

(Alters the value of a cookie, maybe also set flags, e.g. HTTP_Only)
We could make use of a date type (see bug 773271) with the expires field.

I know Joe's hacking on the version of my code I gave him, I wanted somewhere to put my patch in the meantime.
