Speaking as someone who's made this argument in many other mailing
lists: No. There are many places where forums are more appropriate
than mailing lists, but a relatively quiet, plain text only discussion
place isn't worth the switch (for reference, I support forums for places
with lots of discussion, a need for formatted text / inline images /
etc, and / or a really low technical barrier to entry; eg end-user
support sites for desktop software)
