Blogger based on phpbb?

Has there been any thoughts to expand phpbb to include a blogger style format, where the admin posts on the main page, and each post can be linked to a thread, not unlike livejournal.com? I know there are some sites out there that offer this service, but I'm a control freak, and prefer to have this set up on my own site. If phpbb isn't planning on doing it, would anyone out there happen to know a good php based script that does do it?

Thanks in advance

It has been done, you may like to see the following example: http://sakamuyo.net/

They used the following mod, with some changes so that the file could be renamed blog.php : [BETA3] Slashdot Style News Posting By CMX - 2.0.4. You will see a slight discussion on it at the end of the thread (page 14 for those who read this after the fact)

NetClectic is working on one. (It may be done already.)

A very good design! The look and feel is similar to MT.

Will the mod be support in coming phpbb 2.2?

Actually, no or very few 2.0.x MODs will work in 2.2
