Comment (by ringmaster):

 @mdawaffe:  I think figuring out how to stuff custom dialogs into
 check_admin_referer() will be more trouble than it's worth.  If absolutely
 necessary, perhaps an optional third parameter:

 check_admin_referer('dosomething', false, 'do something really funky');

 Resulting in:
 You're trying to do something really funky.
 Are you sure you want to do something really funky?

 That could wreak havok on the translators, though.

 There was a reason I had concocted for not passing discrete actions into
 check_admin_referer(), but I can't recall it now, and your code looks
 good.  I like that idea.  +1 for that.

 @ryan: You're nuts, man.  ;)
