I didn't mean to "deprecate" apreq_cookie(); sorry about that.
apreq_cookie(s) should remain a part of our headers, in some form.

I would like to maintain parity between apreq_cookie_* and
apreq_param_*.  So lets drop apreq_cookie() from our exported
symbols (by inlining it); and do the same for apreq_param().  
Include the plural forms apreq_cookies() and apreq_params() as

For now, I would rather leave "jar" as-is.

I think the rule should be apreq_$object_$method; and I think we 
should only stray from the rule when the OO pattern doesn't make 
sense. To me "args", "jar" and "body" are IMO collections, so let's 
try to think of them as (singular) objects, ok?
