Re: Small patch for the "appsession" feature

considering what we said in this thread, here is the complete patch.

To sum up :
- len : it's now the max number of characters for the value, preventing garbaged results. - a new option "prefix" is added, this allows to use dynamic cookie names (e.g. ASPSESSIONIDXXX). Previously in the thread, I wanted to use the value found with "capture cookie" but when i started to update the documentation, I found this solution quite weird. I've made a small rework to not depend on "capture cookie". - There's the posssiblity to define the URL parser mode (path parameters or query string).

This patch is based on the haproxy-ss-20091129 snapshot.

Well, after a last minute check, the URL parameters were parsed before the client cookies. I've interverted the 2 steps so that URL parameters are only parsed if no client cookie is found.

Aleksandar, Willy, is this ok for you ?
