Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 Like the direction for this so far. Some thoughts:

 * Boone's method of assuming that some post_type settings like 'public'
 and 'show_ui' mean we should expose a UI for activity streams, makes a lot
 of sense.
 * Reads like we're putting the cart before the horse, mocking a UI for
 something that doesn't have an intended architecture yet.
 * What if we build a settings page for the existing activity stream
 actions first, so they can be toggled off and on. This will force us to
 take an inventory of our existing actions, their approaches, and allow us
 to build out the improvements we need to support custom post types as part
 of the native Activity Streams component, outside of the Blogs component
 (which is becoming increasingly less relevant as we trim things out of
 * bp_activity_set_action() (and $bp->activity->actions) give us everything
 we need to create a UI for each of the registered actions. All we need is
 an option to toggle them on and off, and check for those options in
 bp_activity_add() to noop them if they're turned off.
