#3641: Revise "Site Wide Forums" instructions

 I haven't researched it very much, but I understand that there are some
 problems with the way that Site Wide Forums (bbPress 2.0) works out of the
 box with BP. If I understand it correctly, the problem (so far as it is a
 problem) is: if you allow BuddyPress to auto-create a page with the slug
 'forums', and then you activate SWF, bbPress attempts to use the default
 slug 'forums'. But the WP page 'forums' wins this fight, so you can't see
 the bbPress forums.

 In the future, when bbPress forums are a bit more integrated, we can
 probably do a robust fix for this potential conflict. But in the meantime,
 for a bugfix release, maybe we can consider doing one of the following:
 - adding a bit of language to the Forum Setup tab, under the SWF section,
 warning about this
 - at admin_init, sniff out bbPress's forums slug, and see if there is also
 a published WP page with that slug, and if so, bp_core_add_admin_notice()
 about it.

 Either (or both) of these things seem harmless enough that they should be
 easy to implement in a bugfix release. Thoughts? (Especially jjj ;) )
