We restrict super admins from deletion in the UI and should follow that same guideline in wpmu_delete_user() as well to avoid possible confusion.

32935.diff uses the same method as wp-admin/network/users.php to determine if the user being deleted is a member of the super admins group before continuing. Also adds tests for the deletion of super admins.

32935.2.diff updates the tests a bit to manage the global super admins. My VM is being strange right now, so I'm not sure they pass.

In 33143:

Do not allow deletion of a super admin user through wpmu_delete_user().

In step with the UI provided by wp-admin/network/users.php, super admin privileges must be removed before a user can be deleted through the API.
