about bbpress integration on buddypress sites

Hi there.

The bbpress install which comes with buddypress... sucks a little.

Is there a simple way to :

- Have the nice forum list "post in" in a stadard buddypress install, or is there a plugin/widget to do so ? keeping the actual buddypress theme ?

The only way for now is to set up the widget "group list" and that sucks. No related tags, etc...
Moreover, the global forum layout sucks to in buddypress.

Or is it necessary to disable the bbpress and perform a standalone bbpress install and (Oh my god...) integrate it with the main site ? In that case will the bbpress keep the theme ?
In taht case how about group auto subscribe, login integration, etc...

well... desopointed a little about that.
