Is it possible to configure c-lightning cookie based authentication to bitcoind as opposed to rpcuser/rpcpassword?

Yes it works with .cookie now. It is automatic, it is the positive side effect of c-lightning invoking bitcoin-cli to communicate with bitcoind instead of handling RPC and authentication itself.
