If I have a cookie set with a very long value (e.g. sessionid=<very long string>), then the gcli doesn't really help the keyboard-typist-person.

Typing "cookie list" and then clicking(!) the correct key/value pair only prepopulates up to "cookie set key ", not the value.

Can't you add the current value too, so people can mess with that?

Also, why do I have to click in the first place...can't we have tab completion to cycle between possible cookies to modify?

Triage. Filter on Lobster Thermidor.
Nice idea, but it's not been worked on in 4 years, and I don't see that the priority of GCLI has increased in that time, so I don't think we need to keep it on file.
