#4061: Member count in Members Directory 'All Members' tab is incorrect

 The member count in the 'All Members' tab does not match the count in the
 pagination numbers below. The reason is this: the tab count traces back to
 the function bp_core_get_total_member_count(), which does a true count of
 rows in wp_users. However, our BP members queries join against wp_usermeta
 for the last_activity meta item, and thus do not return members who do not
 have a last_activity meta set. Something should be done to make these
 numbers match.

 One possibility is to change BP so that we don't require last activity.
 This is not viable: among other things, this would break multi-network
 installations of BP, which keep their member directories separate by
 exploiting prefixed last_activity usermeta.

 I don't think we should go changing what bp_core_get_total_member_count()
 queries, because there are probably plugins (and maybe even places in BP)
 where it's being exploited for its current behavior.

 So I think the best bet is to introduce a separate set of functions for
 getting the number of BP-recognized users, which will return the same
 value as the members queries. I'll write the patch, but first I wanted to
 make sure there were no objections.
