Message Thanks for the invitation to contribute a patch. You will be getting
them from me as I maintain the MaxQ functions in TestMaker.

In the case of jCookie, it seems to me that the better solution would
be to figure out why HTTPClient is not handling Sparky's cookie
response from the host. If it turns out to be a difficiency in
HTTPClient's cookie handling code then the cleaner solution would be
for HTTPClient to adopt jCookie.

Is Ronald on the users or dev@maxq lists?
