How do you do that as there is no order in the tests ? Do you check in a
setUp() method if an instance variable (containing) is set and if so,
add a cookie to the request ? Or something like that ?

I would definitely not consider this a bug but more a feature request !
:-)

However, I would be happy to apply a patch if you submit one ...
