The simplest options would seem to be not to store messages in a 
non-standard place, so the standard clean-up will work... If you can 
explain why you're doing that, maybe we can suggest an alternative approach.

Failing that, your solution sounds like it should be workable -- 
provided you have a fixed / constrained set of session scope keys to 
clean up.
