OT -- setting httpd cookies

off-topic alert, off-topic alert: COOKIE-SETTING QUESTION, apache
gurus solicited...

Okay. This isn't a debian topic, but you clever debian people are
by far the most informative, helpful and good-looking bunch of
humanoids available, so--

Pointers welcome, of course, to which FM i should R:

In setting cookies via cgi or whatever, there's rules on
having to include at least two portions of your domain in the
cookie, such as for hyperarchive.lcs.mit.edu the minimum
domain allowable would be mit.edu, right? But you still have to
put the two dots in, as for example, ".mit.edu".

Would this allow cookies from "smith.mit.edu" and "www.mit.edu"
AND "mit.edu" to be set properly? Or would they go into the bit
bucket, for greenpeace-friendly recycling?

or for more hypothetical instance, cpu.subnet.org.tld can set
cookies with domain=".org.tld" and so can "www.org.tld" but can
plain old prefix-challenged "org.tld" work cookies, in this case?

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #14 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com>
What's a RUNLEVEL? It's simply a big-time setting group;
runlevel 2 might have a full-blown web server plus X running,
and runlevel 3 might be ssh-only, for secure logins. Check
/etc/inittab (and /etc/rc<RUNLEVEL>.d/*) for details on how
yours are set up. And try "man runlevel".
