Hello Pieter,

Please make sure to address items like this to the galaxy-dev@lists.bx.psu.edu 
mailing list rather than individual email accounts as that will ensure more 
timely responses that include more optimal feedback.

Sanitizing values from input text fields on tools and other Galaxy forms is an 
essential part of ensuring that the values will not wreak havoc within the 
Galaxy environment.  Opening this up to being optional may be a concern to some 
Galaxy administrators.  In any case, the Tool Shed probably should not have the 
ability to define the use of this feature since it has no affect within any of 
the Tool Shed environment ( only Galaxy or other applications in which things 
are installed from the Tool Shed will be affected ).  So if it is decided by 
the Galaxy community that this feature ( i.e., sanitizing form text field 
values ) should be enhanced or altered, changes should be made within the 
Galaxy environment rather than the Tool Shed.

As input regarding this request comes in from the community, perhaps we can 
create an appropriate Trello card to capture the direction we should go.

Thanks very much for your request on this!

Greg Von Kuster
