#2518: At setup: Selecting existing WP pages to serve as BP pages doesn't work

 In trunk (3130), there are a couple of things broken with the way that WP
 pages and BP pages are linked:

 1) Choosing an existing page doesn't work quite right. The hrefs for the
 main navigation tabs (under the blog title) are created using
 $bp->[component]->name. There is no reference to the bp-pages sitemeta
 where the information created during this setup step is stored.

 2) The way that the items are being stored (as sitemeta) is messing up
 some permalinks when BP_ROOT_BLOG is defined in wp-config.php. See #2456.
 Plus there are references to get_blog_option and other MS-only functions.

 3) This is a question more than a statement: Are the choices that people
 make for BP pages supposed to reflect slugs throughout the site? Eg if I
 choose an existing page called "Folks" to be the Members page for my
 installation, that means that the members directory will be at
 example.com/folks. But what about example.com/folks/boonebgorges? That'll
 only work if the admin has defined a different members slug. This seems
 like a redundant step - IMO it would be nice if the slug were created
 based on the page name (though this would require some finagling, I'm

 I'm gonna take a swing at a few patches to clean up the WP page linking to
 see if I can make sense of it, especially with issues (1) and (2) listed
