you misunderstood me. I was talking about someone who wants aa fourm 
will only install phpBB w/o GL and the bridge. If they install GL and 
Forum they get all what GL gives them w/o needing it becuase they just 
wanted a forum

it might be that blaines forum is superior to phpBB, surely in 
combination with GL. However, most of the people who "just want to run a 
forum" are probably completely overloaded with running GL.

I agree with your whole point in the way that we have to advertise the 
plugins and features of GL in greater detail. I think this can be 
easiest achieved through proper documentation
