Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Thanks for working on this, @r-a-y !

 [attachment:7826.03.patch] changes some `@since` annotations and does a
 bit of spelling/coding standards cleanup.

 A couple thoughts/questions:

 - I think that "data erase" is probably functionally equivalent to
 "account deletion", at least if it's meant to be a *bulk* data erasure.
 Perhaps we could add to the Delete Account page some language to the
 effect that deleting your account will also trigger the deletion of all
 your identifiable data, and perhaps the "Erase Data" section on this Data
 panel could just point to the account deletion page. When user account
 deletion is disabled, perhaps this section should have a note about
 contacting the site administrator? In any case, I don't think we need a
 separate action for it.

 - I'd wager that, in many communities, the administrator will not want to
 have to approve these requests. What do you think of having a filter that
 allows them to be auto-approved? (It's not totally clear how hard this
 would be technically.)
