Never thought of that. Sounds like quite a good idea.
Can anyone tell me if there's any reason for not doing that, even on pages
that do not require session data?
Or perhaps use an htaccess file to server side include a file file to all
files under an admin folder or something and another to destroy the session.
I'm thinking of smaller, low-traffic sites.
I know people are going to say, if they're small sites, why can't you only
start sessions on the relevant pages but it sounds like it could work well
