 From BP's point of view, the forum post and the corresponding activity
 item are *not* the same content. Not necessarily intuitive from a user's
 point of view, but that explains why it is the way that it is.

 One possible fix is to save all Favorites data for forum posts (and blog
 posts, and blog comments...) as Activity favorites data. So when you
 favorite a forum post,  you're *really* favoriting the corresponding
 activity item. That'd make for easy implementation. The only problem would
 be if the author of the post (or site admin) decided to delete the
 activity item (or block it from being created in the first place) without
 also deleting the original content. Then you'd lose your favorite status
 even though the content was still there.

 I don't know that there will be time to implement this by 1.3, so I'm
 bumping it to 1.4. Feedback or patches welcome.
