I noticed whilst formulating a reply to users/23847 that the shell still
sources the user .zlogout even when the privileged option is set. The ML
archive doesn't go back far enough for me to see what the rationale was for
that, but i'm guessing maybe it's because the feature was borrowed from ksh,
and ksh doesn't have a logout file. (In fact, the option didn't originally
affect zsh-specific init files at all, since it was only used for ksh
emulation.) But shouldn't the same logic apply? Or is there a particular
reason to treat it differently?

(If it *is* desirable behaviour, i'll send a different patch documenting that
more explicitly)
