#7506: friends_add_friend() should convert accepted arguments

Component:  Friends       |    Version:
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 Currently when in code you do something like this:

 friends_add_friend( $user_one, $user_two, true );

 where `$user_one` and `$user_two` are like this: `string(1)"1"` - the
 success email won't be sent to `$initiator_id`.

 Reason: a kind-of-broken logic in `BP_Email_Recipient::_construct()`,
 where we check `$email_or_user`. Because of this token for
 `recipient.email` is not generated and `bp_email_set_default_headers()`
 generates notices.

 So there should be several improvements:

 1. `friends_add_friend()` should `intval()` its arguments.
 2. `BP_Email_Recipient::_construct()` should be aware (or degrade
 gracefully) of a user id coming as a string, not an integer. Perhaps,
 `is_numeric()` instead of `is_int()` check?
 3. `bp_email_set_default_headers()` should have `$user` check to prevent
 generating those notices in case user ID is a string passed to
 `bp_send_email()`, because `$user->ID` doesn't exist.
