Comment (by ringmaster):

 ryan:  As far as I looked, plugins never pass through
 cheack_admin_referer() unless they call it themselves.  (All "page="
 handling is done in admin.php and then exit()s, before the core admin page
 is even fully executed.)  So it wouldn't make things more backwards
 compatible if we added that check.  I had assumed that we did that, but
 apparently we don't.  It's actually one reason why adding this patch will
 run more smoothly than we thought.

 +1 for pluggable creates and verifies from me, too.  Let the vocal non-
 contributors wait for someone else to write something "better".
