Comment (by DJPaul):

 > I'm now remembering that we support date queries for activity, but we do
 a class_exists() check.

 This is exactly the sort of thing I would not want us to start doing more
 in BuddyPress. It's one of the things I had a vague recollection of when I
 started to write this ticket, but I couldn't find it searching the code

 I think we should at the least change the minimum supported version to
 3.7, so we can remove the above `class_exists`, but also because we have
 not been running unit tests against 3.6 for almost a year: r8017

 I would also support increasing the minimum supported version to 3.8
 because we have a line in the Travis-CI config where we have to disable
 `WP_DEBUG` with PHP >= 5.4 because of the `ext/mysqli` deprecation in PHP,
 but I understand this is a harder sell because I don't think we've yet
 introduced features that rely on 3.8 code.
