#5472: xprofile_insert_field -> type - 'option' not allowed?

 When using a script to populate xprofile fields, this works:

    // in a loop
    xprofile_insert_field( array(
        'field_group_id'    => 1,
        'parent_id'     => $some_id,
        'type'          => 'selectbox',
        'name'          => $some_name,
        'option_order'  => $i

 But option_order is not set in the db.
 Perhaps because 'type' is selectbox so option_order is ignored in
 class BP_XProfile_Field->save() ?

 But if 'type' => 'option', nothing is inserted.
 Perhaps because it fails here ?

 // in function xprofile_insert_field()
 if ( !in_array( $type, (array) $bp->profile->field_types ) )

 Populating xprofile selectboxes is a common chore.
 Being able to set the 'option_order' is important.
 I've been side-stepping it by using $wpdb->insert.
 But I was going to do a plugin re djpaul's comment in this thread:
 So I probably should use the 'BP Approved' approach - which isn't possible
 unless I missing something.
