Comment (by snark):

 If I understand correctly what is being discussed, it would be the
 potential end to BP Forums (& Groups too?), replaced by bbPress Forums,
 like you have the option to do know with Site Wide formums. Is that
 correct? If so, I am all for it and don't mind making the switch, but here
 is what I'd like to see:

 1) Be able to keep the old BP Forums in a "read-only" mode. Since my
 BuddyPress site ([http://www.wordlab.com]) has thousands of Forum entries,
 I would love to keep all that for future reference and SEO content, just
 move it perhaps to an "old forum" directory.
 2) Is it possible to give BuddyPress the functionality to turn off the
 addition of new topics and replies to all Forum posts, but still leave the
 posts up for read-only reference?
 3) Our users have long been confused by Groups vs. Forums and the Activity
 Stream vs. Forums, so I'd actually prefer to move to a simplified, single
 bbPress sitewide forum, but again, I just don't want to lose all that
