Howard et al, perhaps a suggestion on how this would be done in 3.1
could be added.

Intercepting for the sake of it may not be a good idea.
Perhaps being able to register an EventListener would be nice, though I
would have thought that there would be a SessionCleanupListener like the

Haven't had time to fire up Tapestry 3.1 yet, so don't have all the
pieces yet.
