 The `set_current_user` action fires inside the `wp_set_current_user()`
 function, so even though it's a bit confusing and not ideal code
 architecture from upstream, BuddyPress's usage here is as required.

 Searching the codebase for `set_current_user()` usages only brings up
 BackPress code, so BuddyPress also does not call either function directly;
 it's just along for the WordPress ride.

 Even though this issue was a miss, thanks for keeping an eye out for stuff
 like this. I find it to be incredibly easy to miss when core deprecates
 and rearranges things, so it's good to call these out to give them a
 deeper look.
