 38203.patch] replaces `absint()` assignments with `intval()` instead. My
 reasoning for this is:

 * Post/Comment/User IDs are passed through `intval()` in many locations
 * Mutating the `$object_id` away from the intended value reduces trust in
 the API
 * `$mid` touches also already use `intval()` on the `meta_id`
