1.6-beta1 - page=bb-forums-setup

The bb-forums-setup page is rather confusing.
As powerful as the new bbPress setup options are, it would be great if they were clearer for users.
If you have Site-Wide Forums installed, then you shouldn't see the
'Install Site Wide Forums' button.
Rather, show an 'UnInstall?' button or some other indication that's it's already installed.
The bb-forums-setup page should also show some helpful info.
For example, for those admins who are not going to use Group Forums - something like:
"If you’re not going to use Group Forums, go to BuddyPress -> Settings -> Forums and install Site-Wide Forums. Then disable the component in BP 1.6 in Settings > BuddyPress > Components – uncheck Discussion Forums and Save. You don’t need to assign Sitewide Forums Page in BuddyPress > Pages. Leave it set to "-None-".
In Settings > Forums, if you’re using “Forums” as slug, then create a page named “Forums” then add the forums shortcode/s you prefer http://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/"
But if you 'BuddyPress > Components – uncheck Discussion Forums and Save', then you cannot get to the bb-forums-setup page.
So I think, the message needs to customized or the page=bp-components needs to show the 'Forums' link even if 'Discussion Forums' is unchecked.
And bb-forums-setup page needs some info for Groups Forums without Site-Wide and for using both. Or maybe it's more flexible to just provide a link to a codex page ?
