There is no API for this.

WebKit doesn't handle the cookies, so if there was API it would need  
to be Foundation (NSURL) API.

The cookie-related code in WebKit is to allow getting and setting the  
cookies from JavaScript. The normal business of setting cookies and  
sending cookies along with requests is entirely handled by Foundation  
and CFNetwork.
