Unless you aren't using bash ;p

Someone on #debian once told me how to handle this in a more elegant
manner... Unfortunately, I can't remember - but it was a system-wide
config file..

Anyone know what I'm talking about?  Perhaps the pertinent maintainer
could be asked to place this as a default, as it is not uncommon to
expect the system to clear the screen when you logout, and can be a
security risk if you do not..
