root cookie is available.

For this kind of report you should provide more information. Is this an 
enhancement to the Cookie object? Why is it needed?
Do you really propose that users directly use the _multi attribute 
directly (the leading _ suggest an internal attribute)?
Also, some documentation update is necessary (in Doc/library/cookie.rst)

This is fix for rare problem. If I set 2 cookies:
sid=pub.GHoBitAWLt, path="/"
sid=cab.S97jUfeihM, path="/cab"
All browsers in Cookie header send for any URL '/cab*':
sid=cab.S97jUfeihM; sid=pub.GHoBitAWLt
Current implementation always returns Cookie['sid']=pub.GHoBitAWLt - wrong!
My patch resolve this problem and Cookie['sid'] returns first (nearest/deepest in path) cookie value, 
and also collects all same name cookies in dict Cookie._multi .

Name (_multi) may be wrong, and may be any other :o) .

Also I can update documentation, but my English is not so good ...

Unless you can quote something in the manual that says or implies that should already have this feature, it looks like a feature request. Is it possible to add a new unittest? Prepare any new patches against py3k branch, now 'trunk'.
