Yeah... Sounds like a pain in the ass...

May I request to try JForum?

EA (Electronic Arts, the game company) uses it, so it cannot be /that/ bad.... for example:
Our users have posted a total of 3,597,315 messages
We have 84,182 registered users
Most users ever online was 154,829 on 5/6/11 6:28 AM for comarison:
Total posts 202761
Total members 45746
Most users ever online was 362 on Mon Oct 17, 2011 4:30 pm"

* support for postgresql :-)
* SEO friendly URLs - eg (also features a
* supports caching
* supports attachments
* sticky postings/announcements
* moderation support (can set complete categories/Forums to moderated
(i.e. posts appear only after approval)
* locking of threads
* moving of threads
* read-only&  reply-only forums
* default look similar enough to phpBB (also can migrate phpBB forums)

drawback: no mention of openID or similar.
