I'm new also, but i'll try to help you with what i find recently (and 
it works !)

When you don't find documentation, goto api-doc

there are in Request :

getCookie(self, key)
Get a cookie that was sent from the network. (inherited from Request)

addCookie(self, k, v, expires, domain, path, max_age, comment, secure)
Set an outgoing HTTP cookie. (inherited from Request)

also in Request (i find it in the source code, maybe it's a method for
them ?)


but why everythings is in list ?
{"a":["5"], "b":["3"]} 

why not a compatible FieldStorage ?

I'm most interested in methods similar to ZPT/SimpleTAL/ES and tech. like XMLC in the Enhydra project, but anything goes and I'm grateful for all you have to offer :-)
