I love the idea. Not being a developer, I leave feasibility questions to
others, but I'm very aware that there is both duplication and complementary
information on Forum and UserBase, and currently no easy way to keep them in
sync. The ability to find information across both would be fabulous. And
yes, it would need to be easily reached from either base.
