Re: Rumination on the new list idea, another take

Taken from c.o.l.a.:

   "WWWThreads is a fast/reliable discussion forum licensed under the GNU
   GPL. Combining and adding upon the best features of available forum
   packages it offers a multitude of end user options that include both
   flat or threaded displays, expandable and collapsable threads, private
   messages, user profiles, search engines, file attachments, board
   subscriptions and more. A total admin package includes moderators,
   unlimited boards, ban/unban username or ip, close threads, expire
   threads and more. Runs off of Mysql for reliability and will run under
   mod perl for speed.

   The source code and a demo can be found at http://www.wwwthreads.org";

Isn't this almost exactly what we need?
