That's quite right, except the situation is not the same. If you were
a web developer, the choice is simple. But you are a Drupaler, then
it's likely make a Stack Overflow "clone", while costs something, will
benefit many users.

If we weren't using Drupal for g.d.o but another software, then
vote_up_down wouldn't have many features as it has today (but quite
limited, I must confess). If we don't use the forum, then forum.module
will never be improved...
