 Replying to [comment:15 JDTrower]:
 > I tested 4754-you-have-been-successfully-logged-out.diff and it works as
 intended.  The Log Out text was listed as "You have been successfully
 logged out."
 > Per the comment by filosofo, I don't think the word "successfully" is
 unnecessary.  A user typically would want to know that they were
 successfully logged out not just that they logged out.  I think it is
 probably a personal preference.  I think the wording "You have been
 successfully logged out" is much better than the current "Successfully
 logged you out" message.

 I agree totally. It's really a personal preference as to what it could/
 should say in general. *Cough* Someone make a plugin for this, to allow
 admins ability to add custom logout messages. =P But yes, the general
 user(s) would want to know that they have been successfully logged out.
 Not just "logged out".

 Successfully logged out = (to any general user) that they logged out
 totally and there's no doubt THEY ARE logged out. (It wouldn't leave
 doubts of "if they were really logged out or not" lingering in the mind...
