 Thanks for the report.

 > perhaps querying just the wp_usermeta table for user_id's and then
 populating each one with get_userdata()

 That solution would be pretty efficient if you were using the right kind
 of persistent object caching, but I think it would be pretty inefficient
 if you weren't, since it creates many queries where previously there was
 just one. However, that would need some testing, since the queries would
 then be of a much simpler sort.

 This query is simple enough where we could fairly easily rewrite it to
 take advantage of the relatively new WP_User class, which has full
 wp_cache support already built in. See #3127 for a broader discussion.
 Though in this case, unlike in #3127, we wouldn't need to join against any
 BP tables, so it's much more feasible in this case than elsewhere in
