Well compatibility with phpBB is what you want to make out of it.

The most obvious question naturally is how to use same userdatabase and 
profiles with Zope and phpbb. For that you need to modify some 
userfolder - for example exUserFolder to use the phpBB database.

Needles to say, that requires knowledge of both how phpBB works and 
Python programming on Zope.

As a tip to the development, do most of the development work on 
filesystem - so that code can be put into CVS or other versioning system 
and story only data ( ie. content ) inside zodb. This way it is also 
easy to manage different versions of the site ( development, staging, 
production ).
