Oops.  Thank you for letting me know.  I will try to keep these things 
on the doc list, promise.  :)

Can you put the reason in?  Or maybe, big letters, *essential*, because 
it sounds fairly so.  All of the steps are essential of course, but that 
one is a little counter intuitive, I don't know why I'm doing it.  Does 
this not work if you have cookies disabled?
