BackPress is more of a two way thing.

It has grown out of the fact that bbPress started by taking some of  
the core WordPress code and it is an attempt at pulling out the stuff  
that is sharable between projects.

Maybe one day WordPress will use BackPress as an svn:external in the  
same way bbPress does.
