Let me get this right .. the solution to this problem is to:

 a) build a single 'parse_content' type procedure which takes a 
    chunk'o'text and (after checking the typical magic_quotes 
    shit) converts it from one state to another state.

 b) assign the use of this procedure EVERYWHERE.

We could use a number of parameters here, including from/to states and a
'sanitise' option to remove all HTML (for html clean areas like title, etc).

  parse_content( $entity, $start_state, $sanitise = FALSE )

Is this our solution?  Have a single and enforced parser that puts the text
into a db-friendly format, and parses that format into 'html'?  Or have I
missed the boat.
