 In [changeset:"9210"]:

 Introduce Member Types API.

 BuddyPress member types are akin to WordPress's custom post types.
 can use `bp_register_member_type()` to register their types with
 and BP will automatically provide a number of pieces of functionality:

 * Mechanisms for storing and fetching member types (as a WP taxonomy
 term), with full cache support.
 * A 'member_type' argument for the `bp_has_members()`/`BP_User_Query`
 stack, which allows filtering member loops by member type.
 * Admin UI for changing member types on Dashboard > Users > Community
 Profile (appears when member types have been registered).

 We'll continue to build out more core member type functionality in future
 versions of BuddyPress. In the meantime, this is a good starting point for
 site implementations to have a shared infrastructure for storing and
 this data.

 See #6006.
