Please see attached diff. It's basically your patch with some minor

1. Follow style guide more closely
2. Remove some comments
3. Replace respend with headers end. Do a test for page that has 'Set-Cookie:'
   string in its body to see why :)

If those small changes are OK with you, I'll commit your patch soon.

Yup. Besides that we need to check for Set-Cookie2: header, and allow for
custom (specified in configuration) cookies to be sent. Anyway your patch is a
step towards right direction.

I'll try to review a bunch of your other patches. I'm really sorry, that this
takes sooo long, but I'm dead busy with work. Looks like this holds true for
other flood dev'ers (because of that we haven't released flood-1.1 to
public!). Anyway, your patches have a nice, quiet place on my disk until I get
more free time to spent on flood development.
