Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Sweet. Please share (ideas and code) as you move along. I'd like us to
 have a clear strategy with respect to the deprecation of (or refactoring
 of, as the case may be) the existing bp-forums component - templates, API
 functions, etc. That way we'll be able to do plenty of planning and
 publicity regarding how plugin authors and site admins should proceed with
 existing forum-related plugins, etc.

 FWIW, if we *do* decide to deprecate the existing bp-forums altogether, I
 think that we have to have break it into a separate plugin and have it
 ready for release on 1.6 release day, for those who don't want to convert
 to the new bbPress and lose compat with their old plugins and templates.

 The other possibility is to refactor as much of the existing bp-forums
 infrastructure as we can to use the new bbPress, including BP wrappers for
 bbp template tags (for template backpat).

 Anyway, looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
