 Prepare the xProfile component to handle the WordPress field types

 - Add a cache group to cache usermeta IDs by user IDs to avoid requesting
 information more than necessary when it hasn't been updated.
 - Edit the Profile field sanitization filter
 `bp_xprofile_escape_field_data` so that WordPress fields are escaped the
 way WordPress does.
 - Add the two new Field types `wp-biography` & `wp-textbox` to the
 available ones. See `bp_xprofile_get_field_types()`.
 - Introduce the `bp_xprofile_get_field_type()` function to get the fied
 type of a field thanks to its ID.
 - Introduce a new filter `bp_xprofile_set_field_data_pre_save`. This
 filter returns `false` by default. You can use it to avoid using the
 Profile data DB table to save a field value by returning a WP_Error object
 or true. This filter is used by the WordPress field types to avoid
 duplicating the corresponding usermeta values into the Profile data DB
 - Introduce the `bp_xprofile_get_wp_user_keys()` function to inform about
 the supported WordPress fields (`first_name`, `last_name`, `user_url`,
 `description` and potential WP contact methods).
 - Edit the `BP_XProfile_ProfileData` methods to fetch field data so that
 they now try to fetch data within the usermeta table if the xProfile field
 has a WordPress field type.
 - Deprecate the `BP_XProfile_ProfileData::get_value_byfieldname()` as it's
 no more used into BP Core code.
 - Edit the function used to output the fields into the WP Admin/Extended
 profile screen so that WordPress fields are ignored as they can be updated
 from the WP Admin regular profile.
