I am sorry,

I used the term supercookie to avoid the little known "userdata behavior".

What I meant is the userdata behavior built into IE5.5 and up. It is a way
to store up to 10 times 64KB of XML per domain into something that is like a
cookie on steroids. That is why I called it a supercookie.

I certainly did not mean to use this mediaplayer-cookie-thingy.
