 I was just poking around and I realized that this solution is flawed.
 Deleting an activity item with a mention will reduce the mention count,
 whether or not the mentioned user has viewed the item. This comes about
 because new_mention_count is stored as a dumb integer - it doesn't know
 which mentions it refers to.

 I think that the proper fix is probably to add a usermeta along the lines
 of new_mentions, which keeps track of specific activity_ids in an array.
 new_mention_count can be maintained for backward compatibility. But
 deleting activity items (or adding new mentions) will no longer simply
 increment this number. Instead, the activity_id of the new/deleted item
 will be compared against activity_ids, removed or added as necessary, and
 new_mention_count will be set as count( $new_mentions ). This is about as
 good as we can do, given that mention data is not stored separately in the
