	That would be great if it could be done. I agree that would be the best 
of both worlds. Mailing lists are best for those people that are more 
'long-standing' members of a list, answering questions and the like 
without having to trawl threads looking for what is new. They are the 
'regulars', if you will. Forums are nicer for people that want to pop 
in, search through past discussions for relevant tidbits of information 
and possibly post a question.
	So yes, both please! :D
