the one problem (or possibly a feature, depending on how you intend to
use it) which i see is that tom's current version requires every
poster to log in with an account on the system - i.e. no webusers, no
guest user, only registered linux users...

but as i said, this may well be a feature and tom is also working on
the public option...

by the way, there's also always slashcode which is definitely not
suitable for everything and sometimes just too
junky/big/cumbersome/complicated, but it's a pretty professional and
excellent system.
