Buddypress group forums and edu-blogs forums theme

Looking for a little guidance here…

My users are inquiring about using buddypress groups, such that I believe that I will soon have more than a handful of associated private forums.

I use the edublogs forums theme for bbpress, and one of the limitations of the default install is that it displays *all* of the forums on the left hand side. That is fine if it is just displaying the defined support forums, but it quickly gets out of hand when a bunch of buddypress groups are created.

Ideally, it would work similarly to the way the edu-clean theme handles Pages: Specify which Pages are visible and all the rest are invisible.

Should I be looking for a more customizable theme or is what I describe a relatively easy project?
