You could try using Apache Mahout to at least cluster the messages into groups of similar ones
based on text features. That should be doable. Given the groups, you could manually extract
questions (the clusters with most threads could be the most frequently asked). Also, if you
manage to get this to work nicely, it could be a nice tool for other projects as well. Would
be a fun exercise anyways...

I am starting to toy with Mahout for another pet project. Once I get more comfortable with
it, I might be able to take this on (not a promise).

I think automatic question extraction is a quite ambitious goal.
