Comment (by imath):

 Thanks jjj for listing the different alternatives.

 As you said, DJPaul & hnla and you worked hard on this feature, so i find
 it a bit "frustrating" to not have it in 2.2. On the other hand, the
 rewrite rules perspective introduces some confusion as you described in
 your latest comment.

 So i think we shouldn't go in the first and second option route as i find
 it too bad to be "quite" about this feature that can be really expected by
 some users. I'm not a complete fan of the plugin route, in this case you
 just need to publish a snippet users can add in their bp-custom.php file.
 But it made me think to a 4th option, i'd like to suggest.

 This is a "theme" feature, so we could put the code into the bp-legacy
 theme. It seems to me less "set in stone" that way, and just like theme,
 template packs can be changed...

 So i suggest 6065.03.patch.

 About the directory/single items pages. I think we should restrict by
 default to the directory. If you test the feature in twentytwelve with the
 full page width template, you'll see that the directory is displayed the
 right way, but not the single item (a blank sidebar at the right). So i
 guess something is wrong somewhere with single items (probably the body
 class for twentytwelve). So i've introduced a filter to let people
 eventually allow page template for single items..
