> remove UIXCookie as the values are no longer used
> -------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: TRINIDAD-1261
>                 URL:
>             Project: MyFaces Trinidad
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Gabrielle Crawford
>            Assignee: Gabrielle Crawford
>             Fix For: 1.2.10-core
> UIXCookie seems to be dead code that should be removed.
> UIXCookie is supposed to supports the following state:
>         * The accessibility mode chosen by the user
>         * The TimeZone of the user
> As far as I can tell, the info on the cookie for the tz and accessibility mode are never
> TimeZone
>     * Server: UIXCookie.setTimeZone, the only way to assign
>        the UIXCookie tz, is never called on the server.
>     * Client: There is a script written to the client in
>        HeadRenderer, which on the client writes tz info
>        into the uixcookie. However this value is never used
>        on either the client or server. It used to be used on
>        the server in RequestContextImpl.getTimeZone, but that
>        code has been commented out long ago.
>     * Conclusion: We're needlessly writing out a cookie script
>        when the value set on the client is never used.
> Accessibility Mode
>     * Server: UIXCookie.setAccessibilityMode, the only way to
>        assign the UIXCookie accessibility mode, is never called
>     * Client: I see no references on the client to the
>        accessibility mode cookie value.
>     * Conclusion: I don't see how the mode could be set on
>        the cookie. Andy Schwartz, who has worked extensively on 
>        accessibility issues, thinks this is old code that is no
>        longer in use.
