 boonebgorges sez:
 "The idea is this: The "total members" number that you were formerly
 seeing  is actually not very meaningful."

 It's very meaningful to site owners and any devs who are touting a site
 (example jjj re buddypress.org ). Valid or not, the total count is used as
 a measure of success. Display of that number is important.

 So, while the change makes sense in 1.6, it will elicit howls upon
 upgrading. And result in ~184 repeats of the same question in the forums.

 I think there are only two places where the displayed count will be an
 The 'All Members' tab count in Activity and Members.

 So why not provide an option re what number ( active vs. all ) to display

 I can't create a patch, but here are the snippets for creating the option
 in admin.php?page=bp-settings

 I'm not sure how best to use this option in the code... Just in bp-default
 templates ?
