#3877: Always load bp_get_options_nav() in members/single/profile.php

 I get the reasoning behind this - you'll never need the Edit or Change
 Avatar item on profiles other than your own. But it limits extensibility
 for developers. See eg http://buddypress.org/community/groups/creating-
 profile-section/ Moreover, xprofile is the only component where we do
 this, which makes development inconsistent.

 If we're concerned about the wasted screen real estate in showing a subnav
 that only has a single item ('Public'), then perhaps we could replace the
 bp_is_my_profile() check with a different kind of (optional) check, which
 only displays the subnav when there's more than one item. Regardless of
 whether we do something like this, I think it's a good idea to remove the
 bp_is_my_profile() check (and double check that the Edit and Change Avatar
 items are only visible to the current user/super admin, which I'm pretty
 sure they already are).
