Feature Request - using bp activity plus in the bp forum ?

I am replacing my current forum software with buddypress, especially since buddypress is now a true plugin with wordpress as of 1.5. The problem is that there doesn't seem to be a good plugin for adding images (hosted or uploaded) or videos to the bp forum posts. Buddy Activity Plus work perfectly for what I need, however it is designed just for the activity stream. Can this plugin be altered to work with bp forums, or could a similar plugin be built ? What are my options ? A gallery/album plugin only solves part of the issue, as I can replace some 'pic threads' with those. However, the members often post a single pic or video to aid the conversation.
