I think that a forum is good if you want to increase interaction at the
expense of time efficiency.  This makes sense if a mailing list is no
more good enough because of excessive traffic, too many threads, too
many people writing and answering.  While it seems to me that traffic on
this list has increased in the last few years, I think we are not there
