hi andreas,

there are a lot of extensions in the repository that you can combine to 
achieve a community-like solution fx. there is a quite well working 
integration between chc_forum and cwt_community.
If you want to see what you can do with it register at 
www.mind-evolution.de, a community-solution we built.

the downside to all of this from my experience is that whatever you do 
typo is written in php, the database is mysql and looking at the 
extensions and the core there could be tons of things done to save 
ressources and speed up the things.

community-solutions in general are build with more or less not 
cache-able pagecontents, most of the contents are build custom for every 
single page and every single user.

in the end i think it depends on
how many active users do you expect? and
whats the budget for the hardware?
