+ClientCookie is a Python module for handling HTTP cookies on the client
+side, useful for accessing web sites that require cookies to be set and
+then returned later. It also provides some other (optional) useful stuff:
+HTTP-EQUIV and Refresh handling, automatic adding of the Referer [sic]
+header, automatic observance of robots.txt and lazily-seek()able responses.
+These extras are implemented using an extension that makes it easier to add
+new functionality to urllib2. It has developed from a port of Gisle Aas'
+Perl module HTTP::Cookies, from the libwww-perl library.
