But it would be nice if people could choose what forums to show on the "front". Or the admin could create a set of customized fronts.
This may not be widely required, but certain forums could take advantage of this feature. My own personal forum has over a hundred forums on the front and while its great its also information overload. Particularly for the community I run most people usually stay inside a specific section and don't move out of it, as such the "front" is not really used.
Btw, I love what I see on xenForo and will be following it with great interest. If the price is right I would still buy a license just to support the project though I may not jump over to it right away.
