I would suggest to leverage the existing components, i.e. DatabaseActions.
With the traditional ones (2.0.x) you could get away with writing an action
that parses the data, stores it in a request attribute and let a DatabaseAction
to the job.
With the DatabaseActions from the modular package (scratchpad in 2.0.[23], or
2.1) you would need to write an InputModule for the parsing.
