Well, now I feel this is ready to be commited. I even put a conditional
in it, so only Set-Cookie header gets different treatment.

This is an issue with cookies: when you get multiple response headers
with the same name, they are overridden. This is probably what we want
for location but for set-cookie this is bad. So says RFC 2109:
   Informally, the Set-Cookie response header comprises the token Set-
   Cookie:, followed by a comma-separated list of one or more cookies.

according to the cited RFC I believe this to be correct. The patch does
apply and does not cause parse errors. ;)

Please add a code comment quoting the relevant bits of the RFC.  Like
that, we'll be able to understand what is going on.
