#7984: Core multisite changes require mods to BP

 In preparation for 'site' support in the core REST API, WordPress has made
 some internal changes surrounding site creation in Multisite. See
 https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/41333 and especially
 https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/43654 for details. Summary:

 - The new canonical way to create a site is `wp_initialize_site()`, and
 other methods (`wpmu_create_blog()` etc) will soon be converted to
 wrappers and deprecated
 - WPMU hooks like `wpmu_new_blog` are deprecated

 In the medium term, we should migrate over to the new methods, though
 doing this will require some WP capability sniffing. (For example, I'm not
 sure of an elegant way to hook to `wpmu_new_blog` only if the new
 `wp_initialize_site` hook is not available.)

 In the short term, we should add deprecation notices to our automated
 tests so that they pass.
