 As hnla alluded to in #5142, this is definitely a load order issue.

 `BP_Theme_Compat::start()` runs ''after'' the `buddypress-functions.php`
 file and that functions file contains the extended `BP_Theme_Compat`
 class.  Chicken before egg!

 `01.patch` moves the enable theme compat logic into
 `bp_load_theme_functions()` so we can determine whether we should load up

 I've also introduced new functions - `bp_enable_theme_compat()` and

 `bp_enable_theme_compat()` is extremely useful for plugin devs as it helps
 in determining whether a plugin should serve up templates depending if
 theme compat or bp-default is enabled.

 The only thing I'm worried about in the patch is deregistering the default
 theme compat template stack.  Could use some dev feedback on this.
