The TOC implementation (as well as the OSCAR implementation) basically
assume knowledge of the protocol.  This could be fixed, but since I
don't actively use either of these protocol implementations anymore,
it's not high on my list of priorities.

cookie is an arbitrary string that serves to notify the sending client
which file transfer the receiving client has accepted.

From what a quick google for TOC2 found, TOC2 is not significantly
different from TOC, and it shouldn't be hard to modify toc.py into a
toc2.py.  Patches are welcome! :)
