What I need is the possibility of specifying a different cookie location 
per WebView.
I see that WebContext has a setCookieStorageDirectory() method, but it's 
not exposed in the qt API (nor any of the other APIs, except the C one). 
Having that exposed in the QML WebView component would actually fulfil 
my needs.
There's also a WebCookieManagerProxy class which sounds interesting, but 
I didn't understand what it is exactly.

I wonder if there's a chance for a "cookieStorageDirectory" property 
appearing in the WebView element, or is it too late for Qt5?
