Do we want something with the name "experimental" to be a default? :)

It seems to me like every couple days after a new buglet is found and
fixed regarding cookies (though this most recent one seems to be in the
regular cookie handling code, not just persistent), another one pops

I'd hate to have it the default and end up being forced to quickly
release 2.8.1rel2 (rel1?) to fix a couple we haven't found through 
testing yet. 

Consider me noncommital, but leaning towards making it the default.
