Comment (by r-a-y):

 Looks good!

 `02.patch` replaces a few older instances of `autoload` with

 namespaces? Seems to me it's worth considering, given the memory

 Since the BP codebase is getting larger and larger, we should try to
 optimize wherever we can, so big +1!

 If we could ignore PHP 5.2, it would probably be better to follow a PSR
 standard.  But, hey, we're tied to WordPress -- for better or worse.

 BP_{$component}_{$foo} against a whitelist of BP components - might hit a
 false positive in a plugin that has a class name like BP_Groups_Whatever.

 Good call.  It might be good to write a sample plugin using the
 `BP_Component` class to see if we can trip it up.
