Solution to mod_security issue with Insert Into Post for Media

After some head banging and keeping up with many threads on the forums regarding what to do about the problem mod_security presents with the "Insert Into Post" button for media, I went out to solve the problem myself. After some digging, it occurred to me that the button itself is the problem. Many mod_security configurations deny anything that looks like SQL, and yep, "INSERT INTO" is "SQL". I tried changing all occurances of this in wp-admin/media.php to something else, like "Put inside post" and it actually worked!

I suggest renaming the button so that fewer people will have to work around this issue.
