IIUC, Bertrand was suggesting at the content side of things, rather than 
the mechanism. I don't think it is in the interest of Forrest (now) to 
become a blogging tool, since this feature would presumably depend on 
some live instance of Forrest (the webapp) running on some machine. 
Forrest's power lies in its CLI mode IMHO, and it is clearly the area of 
its applicability where the most energy and continued support has been 
put into. To me, a blogging service is clearly something different than 
generating an RSS feed.
