Hello Alexey,

Thanks for the quick response. After doing some more searching I guess 
this is covered by https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34565 (when 
this is implemented, as mentioned in a comment, going through 
WebCore::InspectorController / willSendRequest etc should come as well.

For now I will simply stop attempting to use a private cookie jar for my 
app---I have yet to dig into webkit enough to see where the cookies are 
added to the NSURLRequest that is being created.
