 > I think it's used as the AJAX callback for the JS bulk delete (though
 this could use some testing). I guess it's probably fine to reuse it, but
 if so, we'd need some unit tests first to verify that we're not breaking
 the existing functionality. (Looks like you've covered it, but the unit
 tests will increase my confidence.)

 As far as I can tell, the JS
 legacy/js/buddypress.js#L1502) uses the function

 functionality. What do you think of this? If you like the idea, I might
 ping one or two more people who have thought a lot about messages in the
 past, to get their feedback.

 Totally agree that this'd be nice. Just wasn't sure if there where any
 interest (or if there'd be back-compat concerns) in such a "big" rewrite.
 :) But if you'd like, please get some more people involved and I can see
 what I can do with it.
