A great value add would be an upgrade that would include: 1. Mod to the theme to include full Wordpress MU and Buddy Press integration. 2. The planned bbPress matching WPMU and Buddy Press work great together as long as the theme will let them work.

What is the point of Buddy Press? Could be interesting if they help professionals, but I've always seen them as something for social networking (BuddyPress), or sites with multiple themes (WPMU)

From researching solutions I've found many with the idea I share; that WPMU will extend the function of their basic Wp setup as a better CMS for a member and social based site VS straight blog. Most of these people only want a handful of bloggers but all using the same theme. The social layer adds more customization layers. Used as a CMS enhancement it is a tool for professional groups. WPMU has a better expandability and fully supports friendly URLS and subdomains.

I have one more thing I forgot to mention and that is that bbPress in the current version and all future versions are built into BuddyPress. Only older versions of bbPress are available to install as a stand alone.
