 In some cases I actually prefer to keep settings like this in separate
 keys, rather than serialized, but in the case of message preferences I
 think it makes sense to combine them.

 As you note, we'll need a migration script. Alternatively (or in addition)
 we could have wrapper functions for checking someone's notification
 status. Eg

 function bp_get_user_notification_setting( $user_id, $type ) {
     if ( $settings = bp_get_user_meta( $user_id,
 'bp_notifications_settings', true ) ) {
         $setting = $settings[ $type ];
     } else {
         $setting = bp_get_user_meta( $user_id, 'notification_' . $type,
 true );

 In any case, this kind of change is likely to break any plugins that are
 fetching these settings in their standalone keys.
