Comment (by StijnDeWitt):

 Hi Boone, I can work now and do what I need. I will just do the same
 change on the current version of BP that we have and refer to this ticket.

 At the risk of nagging, I want to respond once more on the
 difference/similarity of handling the `$usermeta` paramater to the
 `bp_core_signup_user` function.

 You say:
 '''''"On MS, the data is stored in the wp_signups table so that it can be
 used after activation."'''''

 And yes, I see this happening as `$usermeta` is passed on to the call to
 `wpmu_signup_user`. This happens ''unconditionally'', it does not matter
 whether you use xprofile or not, and it uses ''all'' values from

 '''''"On non-MS, BP uses the $usermeta values *right away*"'''''

 And here is what I don't get. If this line in `bp_core_signup_user`
 returns `false`:
 `if ( bp_is_active( 'xprofile' ) ) {`
 then how are the `$usermeta` values ever used?

 In my mind, in MS sites, `$usermeta` is ''always'' used, ''completely''.
 In non-ms sites, it is ''only'' used if you use xprofile, and even in that
 case ''only'' the usermeta for key `profile_field_ids`.

 Probably I am completely confused, but it sounds to me like your
 description of what is happening in non-MS mode is exactly the opposite
 from what is happening in reality... If I'm wrong, then can you tell me by
 what mechanism the `$usermeta` is used in non-MS sites when xprofile is
 not used or there are no values in `$usermeta` with key
 `profile_field_ids`? I can't find how they would ever make their way into
 the created user's meta?
