Is there any mileage in making mod_cookies^H^H^H^H^Husertrack only
kick in when it sees a Referer from outside ? it would reduce the
annoyance factor.

For the movie database I have to manually inspect several hundred URLs
a week for content (Netscape remote control - god bless you :-). The
pesky tracking cookies are a real pain, I have to accept them.  Fortunately,
chmod 444 ~/.netscape/cookies  stops anyone keeping tabs on me from
one day to the next >:-)
