A gateway would not work. Forums and mailing lists are two quite different
means of communication. In a forum you can edit things, move them, delete
them. Also, discussing in a flat view doesn't only look different, it works
differently. Also, if you connect both, you get all the trash that's ok in a
forum because you can skip it sent to everyone in the mailing list.
