The more I think about it the more I tend to like your idea of providing the HttpState class
with an option to select a different cookie policy. As I have not heard a massive uproar against
this idea (yet), I'll start working on a patch. The patch would still need to pass scrutiny
of other guys, though. Stay tuned.

I'm not sure we want to exclude this possibility.  Certainly, I can't 
see using different policies within the same instance of HttpClient but 
if we assume that there are multiple instances of HttpClient within the 
same JVM then I could see a case for it.

I am the maintainer of HtmlUnit which uses HttpClient under the covers. 
 My product requires compatability mode so that I can simulate what real 
browsers are doing.  This means that consumers of my product are now 
*required* to use compatability mode.  That just seems ugly to me.  IMO 
my product shouldn't be fiddling with global settings.
