I would definitely not consider using SMF, for various reasons:

Some time ago mandrivauser.de used SMF, and then there
came a point where we wanted to do something like an
offline live-cd of the forum. We didn't get written permission
or even any permission at all to redistribute the forum,
so we had to change the forum software.

If you want details, i can dig them up or maybe wobo can
tell you a few things about this.

This is only meant to keep this decision a bit future-safe ;)
