It would be great if CiviCRM had the option of using a cookie to remember a contact who is not a Drupal user
Rationale: Many CiviCRM applications will want to auto-complete forms with appropriate values for people who have already registered/participated with a campaign on the website, without giving them a Drupal username and password.
Shouldn't take much coding - it's just a case of setting a cookie. The application code would remain responsible for pulling out the contact's details.
In a previous application, we achieved this by setting the cookie to a random value which was used as a search key on the user database - that way, no personal information is stored in the cookie. We also used a 'Kiosk-mode' cookie to block the Remember Me operation on computers in public places.
