 This patch adds a new filter, named 'is_super_admin' to the end of the
 capabilities.php:is_super_admin() function, allowing plugins to override
 the result of this capabilities check.

 Use cases:

     * Applying/restricting Super Admin privilege based on an external user
 authentication/permissions system.
    * Restricting Super Admin privilege based on a user's network location.
