That would be great!  To concur with Michael Scheidell, it would be 
even better if there was some way to specify where the dynamic text 
would get plumbed in.  However, if that is not worth the complication, 
then I'd be very satisfied with how you've described the interface.

Regarding the plugin(s) that I currently have issue with, should I 
submit a patch using George's method until the security_xxx() methods 
support this interface?
