#3240: search.php functionality needs updating

Comment (by DJPaul):

 There is a fake "Search" component. Check out
 bp_core_action_search_site(). It basically redirects to
 http://ursite.com/groups/?s=query (if you wanted to search groups, for
 example). The groups component then has a piece of code to look at/for the
 's' query and filter the results on it. This is how the search box on the
 Directory screens work.

 In future versions, I want to build something like having a one search
 function to rule them all, which could be implemented into 1.3's component
 class. There is not enough time to do a proper job on 1.3 for this.

 We should be able to build something similar, but less elegant, for 1.3 --
 BP.org's search.php has all of the component loops in the same file, one
 after the other. We should do this the same, and just put a do_action at
 the bottom of the file which plugin authors can hook into.
