A two-part middleware which modifies request.COOKIES and adds a set and delete method.
`set` matches django.http.HttpResponse.set_cookie
`delete` matches django.http.HttpResponse.delete_cookie
# usage: python <> help -- downloads the files to the current directory
# requires libmpq
# Attempts to brute force and download specific patches
# e.g. python --current= --next=
# This would find and download any patches relevant, the next argument is optional,
# but allows you to provide a starting point. This stops at the first patch it finds,
# so you would need to continue with a new starting point if you wanted a different patch.
# e.g. if you didnt specify next in this example, it would stop at the initial 0.11 build,
# which wasnt publicly released
