It seems too generic. For instance, many browsers have options to also
delete history, which I haven't yet found in w3m (does it exist yet?),
and there may be other data that could be options for deletion. Maybe
use M-<DEL> as keybinding prefix, so M-<DEL> k could be delete
cookies, M-<DEL> s could be delete history, and there would be
flexibility to add other options.

What would be your desired implementation?

I'm thinking maybe it should be a feature added to the `w3m-cookie'
buffer to selectively delete single cookies or groups of cookies (d to
select a cookie for deletion, and x to perform the deletion after

Ooops. I mis-wrote. I was referring to the session selection feature
(M-s by default), but I agree that the interface should have
consistency over all similar features, so the same should exist for
`w3m-select-buffer'. Also, it could be that it was in the session
selection code that I saw all the unusual use of tail recursion. I was
looking to see what would be involved in adding a feature to manually
select which tabs in a saved or crashed session to recover / load. I
was in a rush and was dealing with a crashed session of 83 buffers, so
I just copied the session file and turned it to a list of urls, and
manually loaded the few I actually needed right away.
