Another silly question about something I was wandering about recently
when adding support for login hooks into Vampire in order to support
session based login mechanisms.

The question is, if one doesn't explicitly invalidate a session, how
does its record get deleted from the session database? How would such
an inactive/expired sessions be cleaned out in a file based mechanism
where there is one file per session?

Anyway, probably time to start looking at the code to work it out 
Thought I would still ask though. :-)
