I dont know if cookie date format is specified somewhere.
In particilar - whether it MUST be in GMT or in any valid timezone.
Both function does not handle date if it is not GMT.
Actually, following 'policy' of links dev., 
variable format parsing should be avoided.

I've also noticed, that alot of cookies, parsed by my version,
contains expiry==0 - either they do not specify expiry,
or parsedate fails. I haven't debugged that.
