There is a reason for that. All of us are volunteers, none of us work  
for the same company and many are in different time zones. The only  
way to get an inclusive discussion and for the free support to work  
*consistently* is to do it *asynchronously* and maintain the archive.  
Hence the mailing list.

IRC is fine as long as the users understand that there is still a much  
better chance for them to get consistent help on the mailing list. I  
am not surprised that many would prefer to avoid subscribing, but I  
don't see how that could scale for the reasons above.
