I have a rather complicated script set up that handles all of my GitHub watch notifications, but for the Swift MLs it's really pretty trivial, just filtering on List-ID. You should be able to set up the equivalent at any mail host since everyone supports List-ID.
A big plus that jumps to mind for a forum with sections and threads is that the system does this for everyone, automatically, instead of pushing everyone in the direction of creating their own (as you say) complicated script, labels, or other filtering system.
Anyway, regardless of the pro’s and cons of email, forums, reddits, and smoke signals, it sounds like the people responsible for infra have bigger fish to fry for the time being.
Although I know the future’s never set — and sometimes hard to discuss, even now — is it possible to get an estimate about when a good time to revisit this topic would be? (eg: after the new year? a nice valentines day email? after Swift 2.2’s finished up? wwdc?)
