[Koha] Clearing "in house" OPACs

I think it'd be a great idea to create an OPAC timeout feature, and I
suspect it would be fairly easy to implement. I would think you could
embed a meta refresh tag on each page with the timeout set via a
system preference. When the timeout was reached, the page would
redirect to the logout script. Unfortunately, logging out of the OPAC
doesn't empty the cart. I consider that a bug. Maybe we can get both
fixed at the same time.

The system I'm thinking of would necessarily apply to all OPAC
sessions whether they were inside the library or out. Perhaps that
means we need to build in some kind of warning message ("You are about
to be logged out. Click OK to continue your session").
I'm not sure how you'd set up the feature so that it only timed out
