 I think pop up windows are distracting and only work well in situations
 where the action takes place outside the context of the current site, such
 as external logins (OAUTH, iframes) or in an interaction flow for tasks
 like sharing links with link sharing services (twitter, reddit, etc).
 Then, when the action has completed, you close the pop up and you are back
 to your original website.

 I think it is worthwhile to design some mockups so everyone can give
 feedback. There should be no reason why the ui/ux solution problem
 shouldn't be usable everywhere across a BuddyPress site, where relevant.
 For examples, on the "my groups" screens.

 In 1.4, something that I think would be more elegant would be to have a
 safety period; that is, a 5 minute window where you can re-friend after
 cancelling a friendship, without starting the new request process (making
 use of the idea of Trashed items as in wp-admin).
