Comment (by jmdodd):

 Eventually, the plugin that I wrote for bbPress 1 will go away and all
 redirects from old locations will be handled by nginx. Any old id to new
 slug conversion needs to happen in bbPress 2 -- I'll work on a quick
 plugin to handle that.

 We should try to keep all of the new forum settings uniform across
 languages for ease of support and development. Additional processing would
 be necessary in order to use both old ids and new ids as slugs; we'd
 essentially have to redirect twice, first from nginx to a definitely
 incorrect URL in order to differentiate between new correct ids and old
 ids that would need to be looked up.

 I can use `wp_old_slug_redirect` as a model for the slug redirection
 needed for forums that used ids.
