Persistent associative array that stores anything*, just like session  
in PHP and ASP.

This might be called:

Scope would be just like in HTTP cookies, but these wouldn't be sent to  
the server and wouldn't have length limit.

To store object:
document.localCookies['key_name'].value = anything;

To retrieve object:
anything = document.localCookies['key_name'].value;

* only /Storable/ objects should be allowed. Storable objects are the ones
that implement "sleep" and "wake" methods that (un)serialize them.
That would be save/load XML for DOMNodes, toString/parseInt/etc for basic
