 I know this has been brought up before, but I consider this to be a major
 defect in BuddyPress, so I'm opening a new ticket for further discussion
 in the hope that it might get fixed sooner rather than later.

 At the moment, to be able to edit the user's extended profile page on
 either the back-end or front-end requires the 'manage_options' capability,
 which is far too powerful to be granted if one needs a sub-admin user to
 be able to edit these screens.

 I don't see why it's not possible to just use the standard WP roles of
 "edit_users" to grant access to these screens. It's a quick fix, so please
 fix it!
