I do not like WordPress. I think Blogger is better.
So I hope phpBB4 will be nothing like WordPress.

It is not a question of making phpBB look like WP but of having an automatic kernel update system like WP already does.

I'm indifferent to 4.x needing a new theme bundled with it. If anything, I'd say prosilver is almost too iconic to give up as the default — iterate on it to make it better and better (for example, using header tags for post date/author info, footer tags for signatures, etc. or including markup for rich semantics). Nail clean and meaningful markup, then release optional CSS/image packs for it that completely change its appearance up if you want to.
