#3771: Limit redirect cascading when canonicalizing URLs

 In r5313 we adopted a system that will redirect you to the most specific
 version of a URL possible, in order to avoid the current issue of
 duplicate URLs for the same content. However, the system currently in
 place can result in multiple redirects on a single request (as when you
 request example.com/members/boone -> example.com/members/boone/activity ->
 example.com/members/boone/activity/just-me). This results in a somewhat
 slower browsing experience.

 If possible, the canonical URL endpoint should be determined on the server
 side, so that only one redirect is necessary. This should be possible by
 crawling bp_nav and bp_options_nav.
