[plt-scheme] Send session cookie via get-pure-port

From: YC (yinso.chen at gmail.com)

The cookie header needs to be passed in as a single string that has the
format of "Header: Value", i.e.,

(get-pure-port <url> (list *"Cookie: <key>=<value>; <key2>=<value2>..."*))

If you need to make SSL requests, you can use my bzlib/http package's
http-get, which uses list of key/value pairs as strings:

(require (planet bzlib/http/client))

(http-get <url> `(("Cookie" . "<key>=<value>; <key2>=<value2>...")))

You can of course use net/cookie to generate the the cookie header values
via print-cookie.
