Comment (by boonebgorges):

 The changes described in [comment:47] all look great to me. (I suggested
 them, so no big surprise :) )

 Replying to [comment:48 DJPaul]:
 > Core team: I would like feedback on
 https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6592#comment:45 -- either we
 bump requirement to WP 4.0 (please) or somehow re-implement `add_panel`. ?

 >  another scenario would be to do like @r-a-y did for embeds or like i
 did for the Avatar UI, check for 4.0 and enable the BP Email feature only
 if the required version for this feature match.

 This seems silly, given that Customizer integration is only a small aspect
 of DJPaul's patch.

 If it were the beginning of the dev cycle, I'd say forget it, and bump to
 4.0. Given that we already made the announcement, and go to beta in less
 than 2 weeks, I feel like we should stick to our guns with 3.9. I suggest
 silently dropping Customizer support in 3.9:

 if ( ! method_exists( $wp_customizer, 'add_panel' ) ) {

 The Customizer stuff is great, but the rest of the feature works
 beautifully without it, so I think we can degrade gracefully here. Also,
 the chances of someone running BP 2.5 on WP 3.9 and wanting to customize
 the appearance of their emails is practically nil, so I doubt anyone on
 3.9 will notice :)
