If you're using HTTP Basic Auth, logout is not easy because browsers 
tend to remember that info till the end of the browser session. Firefox 
has a "Discard HTTP Authentication" functionality when you install the 
Web Developer Toolbar.

If you're using another credentials plugin, you can always go to 
http://localhost:8080/logout.html (the 'logout.html' view is avaialble 
on all ISite objects) to log out. If you add the following directive 
somewhere in your ZCML:

   <adapter factory="zope.app.security.LogoutSupported" />

you will even be presented with a nice Logout link in the ZMI.
