I think having a Q&A type site should be in addition to the forum, not
a replacement.  That's assuming that people think the Q&A
functionality is worth it.  It may be that some forum software could
be configured to have a specific Q&A sub-forum (or something along
those lines), I don't know for sure.  I'd be willing to research that
some if needed.
