Something of this nature can be done - I did a proof of concept a long 
long time back, lack of interest caused that to be dropped. I dont mind 
picking up on something of this nature again ( given that I spend a 
significant portion of my life messing about with fulltext engines )

But I dont see how such a unified system will remove or reduce the need 
for forums. While there is a large number of repeat questions that come 
up, it still looks - going by impression, no real metrics to back me up 
- like a lot of new content is still coming up all the time.
