#4250: Profile - Public / Private Message

 On profile pages - 2 suggestions:

 1. Get rid of 'Public Message' button. It has no context in that location.
 It appears between 2 buttons that do have context, Friendship & Private

 2. It seems rather clunky to have 'Private Message' take you away from the
 profile you're viewing.

 On a custom build, I've changed that to an overlay and member reaction was
 very positive. I did it all the markup in.../members/single/member-
 and then call a function in bp-custom.
 Click the button and the overlay appears. In the overlay, click send and
 the overlay disappears and confirmation appears via bp_core_add_message.

 It could be done in a core file, like bp-messages-
 but it needs some simple javascript and putting it all in member-
 header.php would make it easier to customize & style.

 btw - is it of any use for me to include my hack functions, as a pastie
 link, or are they too obvious to be of any real use ?
