Comment (by bowromir):

 I think the BBPress way is "ideal" in terms of ease of theme development
 and making BuddyPress function with any regular old WP Theme. But like
 ModemLooper currently the BBPress "way" makes the Parent/Child Theme setup
 we've gotten so used to not function. If JJJ can solve that issue and keep
 the current child/theme workflow intact, and at the same time load the
 template parts from the BP plugin folder, that would be great.

 1: Activate BP and Templates are injected automatically for BP pages
 2: Need to modify a component template like activity/index.php? Move
 template over to active parent theme and modify
 3: Need to modify the forked template for some reason? Create a child
 theme of your active theme and repeat step 2.

 Not sure if the last part is possible, might be a bit much, but honestly
 this functionality does come in super handy when you do a lot of BP

 Looking forward to see how this problem will be solved in the future :-)
