We are probably going to upgrade, it is just a question of talking the money persons into it.
It looks like the 2.x API would allow me to try to set a cookie, and then check if it had been set, within the same module/code block.  This would greatly simplify the code, do you know if this is possible?
I know it's at least potentially doable, but it would depend whether the set cookie call would get sent as a separate call before the page load returns, or if it is strictly sent with the page load.  I am not sure from reading the docs if that would work.
If it would, it would be a great argument for me in favor of upgrading, the code is kind of touchy the way it is set up now.

Cookies are sent to the browser in the CGI header of your reply, so there's no way to set and retrieve a cookie in the same request.  The way cookies work, they are sent to the browser in the reply of a request and are then returned by the browser as part of all subsequent requests to the same server.

So basically, there is no way to set a cookie in 1.29 without reloading the page, is that correct?
Setting a value to Cgi.Cookie isn't going to accomplish anything, as far as I can see.
As far as the code flow I am trying to achieve, if anybody has figured out a way to attempt to set the cookie, and then check whether or not the cookie was set, within the same code block, it would be greatly appreciated.
