#2567: [patch] "Add Friend” Button Filtering

 To allow for the proper privacy filtering of the “Add Friend” button, two
 additional variables are required to be passed. This will allow the
 member’s ID and current friend status to be obtained without the need for
 inefficient and complex string parsing of the passed $button variable.

 This is necessary because since BuddyPress 1.2, the new templating system
 made it impossible to depend solely on using $bp->displayed_user->id to
 obtain the ID of the member whose "Add Friend" button might need to be
 filtered. This is because the ability to request friendship is now
 possible in three different places: the individual member's profile page,
 the overall Members' listing, and within a individual's friends' listing.

 NOTE: It is still necessary to pass the $button variable as well as this
 is the final piece of the puzzle that allows for the “Add Friend” button
 to be removed from template output if required.
