It's a benefit of PHP. Unlike certain other languages, PHP gives you finer 
control over how things are sent. The side-effect of this is that you are 
able to attempt things that don't make sense and can't work.

If you want to use setcookie() anywhere within your PHP program, then 
just call ob_start() at the top of your code and go to town.
