#6460: core function for all  calls to wp_mail

 There are ~15 calls to wp_mail.
 Instead of separate calls, it would be useful to send them all to a core
 function, maybe '''bp_wp_mail()''' which would be the only function that
 calls '''wp_mail'''.

 '''bp_wp_mail''' would have an apply_filters hook(s) before it calls

 As clients increasingly use email tracking & template plugins ( Mandrill,
 etc), having a single function for all calls to wp_mail would make it
 easier than a slew of filter functions for all the wp_mail calls.

 Currently, all the calls to wp_mail are preceded with apply_filters hooks.
 Those hooks would remain.

 But instead of:
 wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message );

 bp_wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message, $type );
 // $type tells you where it came from, for example: new_message

 And the function is something like:

 function bp_wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message, $type ) {
     // add apply_filters hook(s) here
     wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message );

 Just wanted to float the idea before creating a patch.
