Comment (by imath):

 I'm not sure we should do it actually, here's why.

 I'm doing something like this for one of my plugin "WP Idea Stream". I
 understand the interest of this but like it's the case for my plugin, then
 under this top-level menu i would expect to find all that's relative to
 BuddyPress, meaning: Activity/Groups/Profile Fields management/etc...

 And as BuddyPress has began to need things relative to post type, this
 won't be possible as soon as BuddyPress is network activated. Because you
 don't have the network-admin pages to deal with post types or taxonomies
 and tweaking in this part is not great (i know i'm doing it for one of my

 So i think, we should try to find another shortcut/menu item to help users
 find the BuddyPress settings like using one of the Admin Bar links eg: the
 one that helps you come back into the admin when you're on front end.
