Comment (by markoheijnen):

 Converting GlotPress to a plugin adds also a lot of caveats. Like
 WordPress loads so much other stuff that GlotPress never will use.
 GlotPress isn't comparable with BuddyPress or bbPress since it doesn't
 integrate in WordPress.
 Installation isn't such a pain but user management currently kind of is.
 Moving to WordPress only would make things more complex. Also shortcodes
 and template tags aren't any benefit to GlotPress.

 On topic, What are we going to do about this. Replacing BackPress with wp-
 load is not an option and it will never be under my lead. This leads to
 three options:
 - Having someone maintain BackPress on the current repo
 - Move BackPress to GlotPress
 - Find an alternative for BackPress and try to break as few things
