Only allow secure origins to be able to write cookies with the 'secure' flag set. This reduces the risk of non-secure origins to influence the state of secure origins. This implements IETF Internet-Draft draft-ietf-httpbis-cookie-alone-01 which updates RFC6265.
This is an old patch I dusted off which I wouldn't mind eyes on.
There needs to be tests added of course which is on my TODO.
Update: this used to be marked WIP as it lacked the required tests. These have now been added and the PR title is updated to reflect this.
