 directory for anyone who is not currently running bp-default or a child
 theme. That would prevent new installations from switching to the EOL bp-

 I like this.

 > What'd be helpful (and here's a chance for non-devs to jump in) is to
 work up a list of the different scenarios where one would be using bp-
 default, or assets thereof, and to run a series of tests using DJPaul's
 patch. Things like: bp-default as active theme, as parent theme, plugins
 like Genesis Connect that pull assets from bp-default, etc.

 Here's some quick code to redirect assets from `/bp-themes/bp-default/` to

 For this code to work, the `/bp-themes/bp-default/` asset must not exist
 and the `wp-content/themes/bp-default/` directory must exist.  It's better
 to do this in .htaccess, but thought I'd put up some initial code for now.
