Because GNU Mailman is written in Python where as phpBB is written
in...that other language :P

More seriously, mailinglists/newsgroups let everyone follow all the
conversations that are going on, whereas in forums there's no way
(that I've ever heard of) to "subscribe" to all the topics
automatically. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Follow the path of the Iguana...
