systemwide bash login shell cleanup file

Is there a way to implement a systemwide bash cleanup file as there exists a systemwide initialization file (/etc/profile).

I do know about the user's .bash_logout file but I'd like to not use if for this task ...

I do not think that there's another file. The only way I can think of is if you write a wrapper around bash and use that as shell. I'd rather like to stay away from that of course ...

If anybody knows a way to do this besides that one plz post :-)
