first of all: Thanks for all the great work done so far.

I've been lurking around here for a while, until now only reading.

I'm currently in the process of implementing a WPMU/Buddypress site  
which needs privacy based on tags similar to the one described by  
Chris Taylor.

I have read the roadmap which says "privacy privacy privacy" in core.  
Is this a subject somebody is already working on actively? Or is  
there already a plugin or something?

@Chris Taylor: Is your privacy concept something which you want to be  
added to BP as open source? Or is it specific to your site?

I have only very limited time since I have to run my main business to  
support my family. But if there's some work which needs my help,  
maybe I could contribute...
