It actually turns out to be ridiculously simple.

Put the following before any other print statements:

print "policyref=\"http://www.thedomain.com/w3c/p3p.xml\", P3P: CP=\"NOI DSP COR CURa ADMa DEVa TAIa OUR IND UNI COM NAV INT\"\n\n";

And that is it!

This should be pointed out on the W3 site.  As it is, it just says you need to modify the server to insert the P3P code into the header whereas all you need to do is add it into the script that is reading the cookie.  Since a third party cookie is always going to be read by a script, putting the CP policy in the script will probably always solve your problem without having to do anything to the server related to HTTP headers.
