#6172: Blogs loop template li elements class attr hijacked by BP core

 On the li children in the blogs loop the class attr has been commandeered
 by BP:

 This is to provide the looped entries with a zebra stripe class odd/even.

 While nice and good to do  the implementation leaves the frontend dev no
 room for modifying - yes there's a filter but a filter! the requirement is
 to add one simple string, a 2 sec job, rather than have to open another
 file write a function to filter that simple string in and have more code
 to support littered throughout various files.

 All template functions such as this need to be parametrised, we need to be
 able to pass args over on any function such as this, or at least to the
 majority of them.

 This has come up briefly before and iirc I've ticketed another instance
 along these lines that needs addressing.

 We/I need to audit all of these where they may occur and update them to
 use bp_parse_args()

 I'm willing to tackle this in 2.3 along with a few other templating
