It seems to me that if you want to be seo-friendly, you use the path_info_seo template set, and you use the robots.txt settings included in the FAQ.

If that's the case, what about including in the install a default robots.txt file like the one below that would work for anyone whether or not they turned on URL rewriting or not?

This is just like Joomla where they include an htacess.txt file. All you have to do is rename it to .htaccess and you're good to go.

#This following code can be appended to your site's robots.txt file if you are
#using a theme based on the PATH_INFO or #PATH_INFO_SEO template set.
#It will prevent search engine bots from finding multiple instances of your
#posts.  

#Note1: You need to change /forum/ to the subdirectory where you forum is located
#Note2: Your site's robots.txt file is in the site's root directory, not the subdirectory
#where you installed FUDforum
