Just to be clear. Is it worth debating which is better? Some people
prefer one over the other, fine. The original topic was "do we need a
web forum", not "which do you personally prefer".

I think it's quite clear that web forums are more used than mailing
lists by the general public (perhaps not by academics and
professionals, though), so it certainly wouldn't hurt to have one --
regardless of any personal preferences people may have.

I do think we should try to do better than the usual suspects that are
available though. Maybe even write something in Haskell? Are we
allowed to install basically anything we want on the server, or is it
restricted somehow?
