I'm happy to admit that Yngve's solution, if it ever got up and running,
would be a good one. (Although it's worth noting that such a service
would need to deal with a non-negligible amount of traffic.) But it
doesn't exist.

No. What do you think they'd say that hasn't been said in this thread
already?

We've had this basic problem in the domain of cookies for years. I don't
