#2198: bp_core_load_template does not load plugin's sub-templates

 You use bp_core_load_template() in a plugin to load a theme file, using
 the filter 'bp_located_template'.

 If you're modelling your plugin on the default BuddyPress components, or
 even the skeleton component, you could use the above to load an index page
 for your directory, and use a "loop" file to display each item within your
 directory index page.

 However, the whole purposes of the 'bp_located_template' filter is that it
 allows theme authors to override your plugin's theme file by adding it to
 their WordPress theme's directory. The problem is that you cannot use
 bp_located_template() to include your loop file (henceforth referred to as
 a "plugin sub-template").

 Why? Because bp_core_load_template() just sets up the data for the
 template to load; nothing happens until the WordPress 'template_redirect'
 action is called, which only happens once on page load (.e. when it loads
 your index page).
