[buddypress-dev] $bp global

I've just checked in updates to every component in trunk.
Up until now BuddyPress component settings have been stored in a
number of global variables, all set in a number of different places
(bad). I've now moved all settings under a "$bp" global variable.
BuddyPress component settings are now added to $bp in a specific
function for each component (better).
Global settings for each component are set in:
bp_messages_setup_globals() etc etc.
You can check out what is stored, and the structure by using:
<?php print_r ( $bp ) ?> or <?php var_dump( $bp ) ?>
rather than having to hunt for a specific global.
If anyone is writing additional custom components (I know there are a
few people) this is a major change, so you'll unfortunately need to
make some updates. Sorry about that, it's better now than never!
