Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > Any benefit to doing it this way vs. the patch?

 One reason for doing it r-a-y's way is to keep the components separate.
 `bp_activity_new_comment()` shouldn't make any reference to the Blogs
 component. The way r-a-y has it set up, Blogs (and Forums, and whatever
 other component might want to do something similar) will just hook to the
 generic 'bp_activity_comment_posted' action, keeping things independent.

 Either way, there's some "bailing out" required. As r-a-y has it
 configured, we have to bail from running `bp_blogs_record_comment()` for
 WP Comments created this way. If we went with your model, we'd need to put
 some sort of bailout into `bp_activity_new_comment()` - maybe something

 $pre = apply_filters( 'bp_activity_new_comment_pre', false );
 if ( $pre !== false ) {
   return $pre;

 (Sorta like update_metadata() etc work.) But this seems to be more
 confusing than keeping everything on the same hook at the end of the
 function, at least IMO.
