 * milestone:  Future Release => 2.4


 Offereins - Thanks for working on this! The general strategy - splitting
 the metabox from Requirement - does make sense.

 Unfortunately, we're past the due date for 2.3 and there's a fair amount
 of work to be done here (even just in converting it to a BP patch), but
 let's definitely do something along these lines for 2.4.

 A couple of thoughts and questions:

 1. When this is turned into a BP patch, should we continue to implement it
 as a filter on 'bp_xprofile_get_hidden_fields_for_user'? As a filter, it
 can be easily removed by a developer, which is both a good thing and a bad
 thing :)
 2. The proposed UX doesn't address the case where you want a field to
 "apply" to users who don't have any member type at all. To be honest, I
 don't know how to handle this. Maybe an additional checkbox called "[no
 type]" or something like that?
 3. Maybe instead of your "When no member type is selected..." description,
 all checkboxes could be checked by default? Then we could get rid of the
 gloss, I think.
 4. We probably need some helper text here. Something like: "Make this
 field available only to the following member types". It's very hard to
 come up with phrasing that makes this clear, especially because it's easy
 to confuse with the idea of visibility. IMO, "apply" is not a clear enough
 word - we need something that means "only users of the following types
 will have the field appear on their profiles", but obviously that sentence
 is terrible :)
