Comment (by boonebgorges):

 In [changeset:"8133"]:
 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="8133"
 Use WP's array format for get_meta() functions when no $meta_key is

 Passing only an object_id to a get_meta() function in WP will return an
 of arrays, keyed by meta_keys, each containing a list of meta_values for
 meta_key. BP's get_meta() functions were inconsistent in this regard: some
 returned arrays of stdClass, some returned one-d arrays of meta_values.
 returned values that were practically of little use, because they didn't
 enough information about the located data to make it useful.

 This changeset aligns BP's get_meta() functions with WP's. We now allow
 return value of get_metadata() to pass through untouched in all cases.
 tests have been updated as necessary.
