 Oh, maybe I don't need that. Lemme play with it.

 Thanks for checking this out. I still would prefer to do this in
 `bp_core_set_uri_globals()`. Waiting until 'bp_actions' means that there's
 a decent portion of BP's bootstrap where the current member type is unset.
 More generally, doing URL routing in 'bp_actions' or 'bp_screens' seems
 wrong to me - it's always bothered me that this is how `bp_is_directory()`
 gets set. URL routing ought to take place early, and in a centralized
 place. The fact that `bp_core_set_uri_globals()` is scary and fragile is
 not really an argument against this :)
