More graceful error for BuddyPress plugin not activated

There should be a more graceful error for BuddyPress plugin not activated.

I just installed BP 1.1 on a fresh install of WPMU.
Well... I forgot to activate the BuddyPress plugin, then got this error on the blog site:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_page_title() in /bp/wp-content/themes/bp-sn-parent/header.php on line 9

Here is my proposed code to provide a more graceful and meaningful error. This goes in the very top of themes/bp-sn-parent/header.php:

 if ( !function_exists('bp_page_title') ) {
  die(__('Did you forget to activate the BuddyPress plugin?','buddypress'));
