Comment (by mdawaffe):

 I'd thought of that, but it didn't seem worth it.

 But I thought about it again and here it is.


  1. Change nonce actions to 'verb-noun_ID': 'delete-post_1234', 'switch-
 theme_classic'.  This was no easier to parse than 'delete_post1234' but
 much easier than 'switch-themeclassic'.
  1. If check_admin_referer() fails, an array of known verbs and an array
 of known nouns (and what function to call on ID, if any) is built.  Both
 arrays try to be sensitive to i18n.  If we have a known verb and noun
 pair, the AYS is made more specific: 'Are you sure you want to delete this
 post: "WP rocks"?', 'Are you sure you want to switch to this theme?'.
