forum.module is dependent on comment.module in a very visible way on this
$topic->new_replies = comment_num_new($topic->nid, $history);
and in subtle ways, by SELECTing from node_comment_statistics which is
INSERTed and UPDATEd in comment_nodeapi.
First of all, this at least needs to be documented and also we need to
describe how to have a site where users can not comment but can use forums.
Second, we shall either change forum not be dependent on comment or we shall
make a mechanism which makes sure that if forum is enabled then comment is
enabled also. I do know that this could delay 4.6 but this is very
confusing and there are several threads already on drupal.org about it.
