Heh.  Good in theory, except that the wp_logout hook is /*completely and 
utterly useless*/ because there is no way for a plugin to use it.  You 
can put that code in a plugin, but it will not be run on logout, because 
plugins aren't loaded when you do /wp-login.php?action=logout      Doh!

Anyway, both 1239 and 1249 have a patch (actually, one patch for both), 
so the time (about 10 minutes) has already been spent.  1240 is a bug.  
1239 wouldn't be a problem if the wp_logout action worked, but it 
doesn't, and it makes the logout action consistent with the login action.
