Sanitize and filter, sure. I absolutely agree with that. But what about
User clicks a submit button that says 'Begin Upgrade' or something
similar. Callback function checks for existence of that input field and
fires off function to convert, e.g., 1000 records from custom DB table
to custom post type records.
Maybe I'm getting too philosophical, but it seems like too much work to
do from a function that's supposed to validate/sanitize inputs. I don't
see a better way, though.
