Just a suggestion... I can't see why most people would care about (or want) search engines following the WordPress login/logout links. For people who are trying to be careful about not giving away PageRank to unnecessary pages, it'd be handy if rel="nofollow" were added to the login/logout links in wp_loginout(), which is in general-template.php.
