	if ( is_object($post) ) {

		// Check if post already filtered for this context

		if ( isset($post->filter) && $context == $post->filter )

			return $post;

		if ( !isset($post->ID) )

			$post->ID = 0;

		foreach ( array_keys(get_object_vars($post)) as $field )

			$post->$field = sanitize_post_field($field, $post->$field, $post->ID, $context);

		$post->filter = $context;

	} else {

		// Check if post already filtered for this context

		if ( isset($post['filter']) && $context == $post['filter'] )

			return $post;

		if ( !isset($post['ID']) )

			$post['ID'] = 0;

		foreach ( array_keys($post) as $field )

			$post[$field] = sanitize_post_field($field, $post[$field], $post['ID'], $context);

		$post['filter'] = $context;
