 (In [6031]) Refactors bp_core_login_redirect() for better extensibility
 and flow

 This patch does the following:
 - Eases the restriction on login redirects to wp-admin. Previously, all
   redirects were bounced back to the home page. While this restriction
   sense for the majority of users on the majority of BP installs (who
   need to see the Dashboard), it was a pain for Administrators and other
   who have legitimate reasons to visit wp-admin pages, especially when
   clicking directly on links in WP notification emails. This changeset
   login redirects to wp-admin to succeed when users are of the Contributor
   level or higher.
 - Introduces a filter bp_core_login_redirect, which allows plugins to
   the default behavior of bp_core_login_redirect() for some users, without
   requiring that they unhook the function altogether.

 Fixes #4199
 Props djpaul, Jonathan Davis for help conceputalizing and testing
