Agreed 100%. Merging two projects *from the top* is a really bad idea 
in terms of community dynamics.

Besides, the focus of forrest and lenya, while similar, is not 
completely overlapping.

I'm proposign a system where they can be used together, this creates 
synergy and communication. things that improve communities.

if, at the end, the two projects end up merging, well, great, but has 
to come from them, from down below, from environmental needs. but, 
personally, I would like to keep them separate: one community focuses 
on static generation (and tries to come up with smart ways to make the 
most out of it without requiring dynamism) and the other focuses on 
backend things (editing, workflow, versioning, etc...).

well, that's my personal vision of course and, to be honest, not my 
itch to scratch.

we need a backend for our documentation system and without forcing us 
to loose all the good things we have today.

this is what I want (and I would like you as well) to focus. the rest 
will happen darwinistically, as usual.
