#3603: Backpat with 3rd party plugins and is_site_admin()

 Priority:  major                    |  Milestone:  1.5.1

 Severity:  normal                   |   Keywords:
 Our backpat version of is_site_admin() was removed from 1.5 (it was in
 1.2). While core doesn't use this deprecated function, some BuddyPress
 plugins do. The removal of this function is therefore causing PHP Errors.
 We should consider adding is_site_admin() back into bp-wp-abstraction.php,
 or contacting developers to tell them to update, or even consider seeing
 if we can update unsupported plugins on behalf of the original authors:

 1) I've seen a few forum threads about this, but I'm not sure which
 plugins are the culprits.
 2) WordPress only loads is_site_admin() in multisite, so the issue affects
 non-multisite only.
 3) Plugin authors shouldn't be using is_site_admin(), so I'm guessing
 there are out-of-date plugins around.

 I think we should build a list from the forums with people reporting this
 problem to investigate.
