 I don't think the data is as sensitive as it seems (bank account numbers
 are printed on checks, for example), but I do agree that it'd be good to
 redact it once it's no longer needed.

 I think we can safely do that 14 days after the item is marked as paid.
 I'd prefer to overwrite the fields with `[redacted]` rather than deleting
 them, to make it clear what happened.

 I imagine the cron job will be naturally redact old data, but if it
 doesn't apply retroactively for some reason, then we'll also need a one-
 time WP-CLI script to do that.
