Comment (by trishasalas):

 My comments won't have too much to do with your method, looks as elegant
 as possible to me.

 I knew the join was not a good way to handle the situation but what you
 are seeing with my code is:

 1) My lack of familiarity with BuddyPress (if I grab the users from group
 members how do I know who they are from just their id?  is that in
 BP_User_query?  I thought it might be but wasn't sure.
 2) My lack of php coding experience.  In retrospect I probably should have
 said as much but I wanted to try.

 The idealist in my loves the use of OOP techniques, I would like to see
 WordPress head that direction but understand and really trust the devs
 working on that code base.

 Once the dust settles on the push for 1.8 I would value some direction as
 to how to get my coding skills where they need to be to be helpful in
 situations like this.  I am doing as much as I can find as far as online
 classes, etc.  The problem with php is that there is so much out there and
 not all of it is good.

 All that being said.  I like the idea of uniform queries throughout
 BuddyPress and I would love to do some documentation in the codex on that.
 I know it's in the code but I can definitely see the value of getting it
 out there.
