Description (last modified by wpmuguru)

I put this on future release but we should do it early in 3.1. Currently, by default,

an upgraded MU install has an empty string as a cookie name hash

a single WP site uses the siteurl option as the seed for a MD5 hash

a WP -> WP 3.0 network uses the main site's siteurl option + '/' as the seed for a MD5 hash

We should move these to a common more appropriately name option/site option and give the super admin(s) the ability to change it and/or generate a new one.

I'm going to dig into our cookie hashing for multisite a bit and see what changes the last few years have brought us. It's possible that this has been addressed.

If anybody has familiarity with how (if) this has changed, please chime in. :)

Nothing has changed since that code was added (3.0),
