Only my two cents but mailinglists tend to be the perfect tool for powerusers.
Forum and mailinglists can live together but I think that developers prefers mailinglists.
It doesn't surprise me that TYPO3 is a bit more powered through mailinglists than forums. It's also one of the only CMS to come without preinstalled website...
A big worldwide forum can be quite hard to manage. You have to be sure to have the resources to moderate it.
Ps : I prefer mailinglists ;)
