#5465: About BuddyPress in WP Admin Bar and multisite config !!

 On multisite config, BuddyPress Network activated.

 1.  a **regular** Administrator of the root_blog  can from the
 administration of this root blog click on the WP Admin Bar "About
 BuddyPress" link to discover the about page **and** :
  - the BuddyPress settings menu !! from which he can deactivate the
 components, change the page mapping, and edit all BuddyPress settings
  - the BuddyPress tools menu, from which he can hopefully do nothing :)

 2. a **regular** Administrator of a child blog sees the same link,
 hopefully on click, he has the wp_die() message

 So i think it's really important to :
 a) avoid showing the About link in th WP Admin Bar on child blogs.
 b) create a specific capability like 'bp_admin' that is mapped to
 'manage_options' if ! multisite() and to 'manage_network_options' in case
 of a multisite config where BuddyPress is network activated. I think i'll
 create a new ticket for this last one.

 The patch only disable the About WP Admin Link on child blogs.
