[thelist] CMS that works with existing phpBB forum

Does anyone know of an open source CMS that will work seamlessly with
an existing phpBB installation? I've got some forums over at
http://www.roguestudents.com/ but the users are asking for more
features such as a proper front page and a photo gallery. There's
already several thousand posts in the database so I don't really want
to have to convert them (I've already gone from vBulletin to phpBB and
that broke a few things in the process) unless there's an easy way of
doing so. Ideally I just want something that will bridge the gap
between a CMS and phpBB, but will keep the users table from the phpBB
database and all the posts from the forums.

I've had a look at Geeklog, but apparently that only works with new
phpBB installations, or at least that's what the documentation
provided with the modification suggests. It looks like I might be able
to do something similar with Postnuke, but the *nuke scripts seem to
have an appalling record when it comes to security.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
