IMO, newsgroups are substantially /better/.  You can supersede and 
cancel, client software generally provide the necessary functionality 
for threading, sites can get a feed and have a local mirror.

Gmane, which integrates newsgroups, mailing lists and a web front end 
seems like a very good choice.

(IRC and Wiki are substantially different that integration doesn't make 
much sense, IMO)
