Comment (by DJPaul):

 The goal is to migrate people to the Admin Bar. I'm about to put this in.
 Some notes:

 Old behaviour:
 * BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR, set to True, is currently used to switch to the WP
 Admin Bar.

 New behaviour:
 * If BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR set to True, it will always use the WP Admin Bar.
 If it's set to False, it will always use the BuddyBar.
 * New installs will default to the WP Admin Bar. The person installing BP
 sees no option to switch to the BuddyBar.
 * During upgrades, if BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR is *not* set, the site is
 switched to the WP Admin Bar unless the admin ticks a box on a new screen
 which I've added to the upgrader.

 * After upgrades where the admin chooses to continue using BuddyPress,
 I've added a checkbox to the BuddyPress > Settings screen. If this is
 ticked and the form submitted, it will switch them to the WP Admin Bar.
 * There is no way to switch back to the BuddyBar once you are on the WP
 Admin Bar, but BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR is still king, allowing customisations
 via wp-config.php, or perhaps someone creating a plugin to force back the

 I've tested the patch thoroughly but am leaving the ticket open for any
 comments or changes to the implementation.
