That's what I was thinking as well. But depending on the existing
software/tools at hand, the joint solution might involve some rather
hideous hacks; the result might be difficult to maintain / extend later on.
(I simply try to visualize the codebases for the forum software that I've
worked/tinkered on; ideally, the mailing list functionality would be a
clean forum plugin module, but writing a clean addon solution might end up
being a difficult task; but in the end, I've limited experience, so don't
know.) Though not necessarily of course.. I'll post a message if I find
something interesting along these lines / end up hacking an abonimation;
it's an interesting approach / line of thought for sure.
