 Following some discussion with @ninjew in #7290: It would make our query
 SQL clauses easier to debug and modify if they always contained a `WHERE`
 clause. So the minimal query would be, eg, `SELECT * FROM wp_bp_groups
 WHERE 1=1` instead of `SELECT * FROM wp_bp_groups`.

 A bit of research suggests that any performance issues should be
 negligible - it adds a very small amount of overhead to the query planning
 stage, and is totally ignored during query execution.

 For reference, `WP_Query` does something similar (though other WP query
 classes do not).
