I would like to encourage you to create a CForms based editor that will 
write to SVN. There is already a plugin for Forrest that creates an 
htmlArea editor, however it is not CForms based and only writes to the 
filesystem. I've been using it for some time with great success on my 
Learning Object editor (

If you create CForms editor here I will replace the existing Forrest 
plugin with your CForm based editor.

This will mean that people will be able to do "forrest run" and edit the 
content in SVn immediately. As the Daisy plugin matures the same will be 
true for content in a Daisy repository. Similarly, if PlanetCocoon 
succeeds we can integrate their content and editing in the same way.

My vision is to integrate all the various efforts via a Forrest 
publishing system. Please, if you have time go ahead and write the 
htmlArea -> SVN editor.
