Comment (by boonebgorges):

 >  Just ran into that. You beat me to the updated patch. I see no reason
 why BP_User_Query shouldn't assume all_with_meta considering our current

 `all_with_meta` is pretty heavy-duty - it primes the usermeta cache for
 each matched user. On the typical BP setup, I don't think we use much
 usermeta in the loop that we're not fetching elsewhere, and in my
 experience, a lot of plugins can leave a lot of junk in usermeta. So I'm
 wary of defaulting to it. As long as the core wp_users data is being
 cached (which it is in `WP_User`) I lean toward not using `all_with_meta`,
 and maybe allowing it as an option in `BP_User_Query`.

 Regarding tests, just to give you a head start: look at
 `$wpdb->num_queries` before and after running :)
