We install logout in a cgi-bin directory using a ScriptAlias -- so it
doesn't need an extension. We install the login cgi in DocumentRoot
with ExecCGI turned on -- so we use the .cgi extension there. Lot's of
our users already knew that appending "/cgi-bin/logout" to the end of a
url would cause logout to happen, so we wanted to preserve that
There's not much more to it than that. Do you think it would make more
sense to move the logout cgi into DocumentRoot/logout/index.cgi or
similar? So a ScriptAlias isn't needed?

just a simple question, why was logout not called logout.cgi, is it
because you have them in the same directory ( ie / ) on the web server
and you have specified .cgi as a directory index and it will get
confused? If so why not use /logout with the logout.cgi in there??
