Thanks Nala,

Looks like :cookies-remove! is now working.
:cookies-value is not.  When evaluated the cookie name is returned, not the value i.e.
(:cookies-value rc  "prjid") ==> "prjid"

I still don't understand the purpose of (:cookies-ref rc 'prjid "prjid")?  It gives the same results as :cookies-check

There're 3 issues here, let me check it one by one:

1. :cookies-remove! has a bug that domain was set to "/" by defautlt, when it's going
to be expired. If so, the client reject to remove the cookie, now it's
fixed in both master and fix/ssql-guile3.

2. Yes, :cookies-check will return the whole cookie. I've added another
API (:cookies-value rc "your_cookie_name") to get the value with cookie

3. There two cookie related field in the rc (which means route-context):
rc-cookie is for the cookie sent from the client;
rc-set-cookie is for the cookies need to add/modify/upate from the

The API only affects rc-set-cookie that handles new cookies from the server-side:

The API only affects rc-cookie that handles cookies of the client:

Folks may consider rc-set-cookie is a bad name, however, it's a hidden
low-level detail, folks may just ignore its existance, and handle it
with the API. Anyway, it can be any name distincted from rc-cookie.
