Oooh, now you're talking. No idea how you'll do it, but sounds good. ;)
One thing that appeals to me as a cms user, is the ability to share
users/passwords/privileges with other systems. I think that phpbb can

use different "specialty apps" for each section of a site. That's me

With regard to these last four points, have you thought of maybe
