This deletes all cookies from libcurl's internal list, yes.

This adds the given string to the outgoing Cookie: header in the request, it
DOES NOT add any cookies to libcurl's internal list of cookies. Use
CURLOPT_COOKIELIST for that. You can in fact also use CURLOPT_COOKIELIST to
"delete" a cookie by simply setting it again with an expired time or similar.
