This issue came up again this morning at a meeting here; the security 
people reported a growing number of reports of people going up to public 
machines at Apple stores and finding Brown logins active .... including 
an Apple store in NYC. Geeesssshhh.

I'm wondering if there might be some way to leverage the contract work 
that Unicon did on the IDP for Wisconsin in order to achieve this 
result.... since that work added spring webflow to the IDP ....

I don't know anything about the IDP's internal software architecture... 
but, charging ahead anyway -- might there be a way use Webflow to add a 
task at the end of IDP processing to disable setting the IDP session 
cookie, if the box were checked on the login page ? Just hoping ....
