 > I'd love to learn a little more about the idea behind the option.
 The goal here is to enable themes and plugins to register their own packs
 of template parts, and allow an admin to switch the BuddyPress/bbPress
 templates only, without changing the blog's theme completely. This allows
 us to have a default/canonical set of template parts that we can
 constantly update, without the burden of the user never being able to
 switch off of them.

 There's no great UI/API for this yet, though. It's literally just an
 option that saves the name of the registered theme compat, with a drop
 down to choose from one of them. I think this is fine enough for a v1, and
 we can look into fancying up the place when we're happy with how it's
