Is there any way to invalidate the session ID so they can no longer be used for subsequent API calls? I know the session ID expires 1 hour after inactivity, but this means that it is possible someone could extend the life of the session ID for an indefinitely long period of time.

I am writing a script in which a local machine need to generate a session ID in behalf of a remote machine, so that the remote machine can run a script on a Webfaction account without actually knowing the Webfaction account's username/password. Once the other machine finishes executing its task, the local machine need to invalidate the session ID so the ID can no longer be used further.
