 The reason for introducing the autopopulated 'bb-config-location' value is
 explained here: http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3677

 The saga behind the "Uninstall Group Forums" button is here:

 In #4004, it looks like the decision was made (and the change committed)
 to change "Uninstall Group Forums" to "Reinstall Group Forums". But then,
 in r6108, when I was doing some bbPress-related admin cleanup, I
 accidentally reverted this change.

 I'm of the same opinion as I was starting here
 http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4004#comment:4, namely that
 group forum uninstallation is kind of pointless anyway, so we shouldn't go
 to a lot of trouble to support it.

 That said, it does seem strange to simply change the text to 'Reinstall',
 as the button doesn't do much of anything at all, as it stands. I suppose
 we could make it delete bb-config.php, but to what end?
