#75 Session cookie name should be configurable

WebKit (58)

When running multiple webware instances of the same
server they all set the _SID_ cookie. My browser (IE,
Mozilla, Firefox) mixes up sites running on the same
computer but on different port numbers so I have to log
in to each site every time I have visited another of them.

I would like the cookie name to be configurable from
the Application.config file. Something like the
SessionPrefix hostname setting should make it easy to
get unique cookie names without editing the config file
for each site when deploying it.

    Changing the name of the session ID (and the cookie) with
    the Application.config setting "SessionName" is now in the
    SVN trunk and will be available in version 0.9.2.

    An option for automatically adding the port number
    (SERVER_PORT) to the cookie has not been implemented. Maybe
    using the "port" cookie-attribute introduced with RFC 2965
    is a better alternative?
