Turns out that splitting the Cookie header into pieces improves
compression efficiency considerably. It also turns out that we haven't
done that, despite talking about it, testing code with it, etc...

Just raised an issue to track this:
https://github.com/http2/http2-spec/issues/292

I think that we've had agreement to do this in the past, but it's been
suspiciously absent from the compression draft.  Roberto hopes to be
able to work this part out for the post-Vancouver/88 version of the
drafts.
