 The changes introduced in r6790 do not work properly when `BP_ROOT_BLOG`
 is defined as something other than the default. That's because
 `network_site_url()` will always point to the main site's wp-admin, and on
 some setups, some network users do not have access to any wp-admin URLs on
 the main site. Thus, for those users, AJAX requests fail silently. See

 I'll try to figure something out (and write some tests so we don't get in
 this mess again). But in the meantime, if we can't figure out a solution
 we are confident with, we should revert r6790 for 1.7, since the HTTPS
 issue here is not a regression, but breaking AJAX for alternative root
 blog setups *is*.
