I have a problem with line 49 in lib/cookies.js:
if (!secure && opts && throw new Error("Cannot send secure cookie over unencrypted socket")

my node workers run in http mode because i handle SSL with stunnel before the requests enter haproxy where they are routed to my machines.

Are you happy with an option called secureProxy or something like this?

sure, that sounds reasonable.

I think this option should be called "force secure", as the library is not doing anything to determine if you are behind a proxy.
