 Currently, the order of the BP Email template hierarchy is as follow:

 - Look for the template on the theme folder: (single-bp-email-slug-
 - Look for the template on the theme folder without slug on it (single-bp-
 - Look for the template on buddypress/assets/emails/single-bp-email.php

 That's fine until you need to customize the templates so that they are
 almost completely different from one another. I have a scenario where I
 have "components" on the site. Each component has its own email, with
 different styling.

 So for me, it is easier to create a custom single-bp-email-slug-here.php
 and customize to the way I want. But creating specific template for each
 email is adding up to the theme folder, together with others single-
 custom-posttypes.php and page-custom-template.php, etc.

 So I'd like to suggest that the priority of the folder to fetch the
 templates from, should be BuddyPress and not the theme's.

 Here follows the order I believe would be better:

 - Look for the template on buddypress/assets/emails/single-bp-emails-slug-
 - Look for the template on the theme folder: single-bp-emails.php
 - Look for the template on buddypress/assets/emails/single-bp-emails.php)

 Maybe single-bp-emails-ID.php would also be an option. I created a patch
 with the example above.
