cookie authentication

this seems to be implemented a bit oddly. the controller has to send the raw 
bytes rather than hexified version to authenticate. 

is there a reason for this? i.e. harder to send from a keyboard?

or was it just convenient to do it that way? if so, would a patch be useful 
for accepting an ascii version of the cookie?
