#2348: WP Roles & Capabilities - BP integration

 BP is currently lacking any use of the WP roles and capabilities system,
 apart from is_site_admin(). It would be nice to encapsulate some of the
 current is_site_admin() calls with a capability check. It can be built on
 going forward.

 For example, you could add a capability to your WP Editors role to let
 them become "site group moderators" -- as in, BP Moderators of every group
 without having to be a member of the group.
 The downside of being able to moderate every group in the current system
 requires you to be a member, which fills your own Activity Stream with
 lots of noise.

 I've attached a very early patch showing the sorts of changes I'm thinking
 of and encourage feedback.
