Ok, maybe this will be best for you in the end! A lot of PBers may like this feature. At a tech forum, I saw that free or cheap software can be downloaded to perform your exact original objective of selective cookie cleaning/retention. (It'll have other functions you probably don't need, but whatever!) This type of software was recommended by forum users, for forum users.
Sometimes freeware downloads, unless very established, aren't worth saving a few dollars.
So here's a reasonable one that's supposed to be very good, called Window Washer. Like many of them, you can download and try it free for 30 days. This one can then be purchased for $39 if you like it:
And here's a link to a search at download.com, where you can pick through others if you want, and sort them by various factors like size, OS or free. There are some reviews there but would also be a good idea to Google any product you are considering for other ratings/opinions:
Here's some of the description of Window Washer:
New in Release 5.0:
