I, on the other hand, want to set a session cookie for when the user is 
logged in, and delete it (and not re-set it again) when the user logs out.

In my case, the same pages should appear on both sites, with tiny 
differences. It would not be practical to maintain two sets of pages 
with repeated elements for the cookie & no-cookie cases.
