It seems Cocoon has most of this content already although the it is 
somewhat fragmented across multiple docs.

Also, Cocoon is far more complex in functionality/scope than Forrest. A 
Cocoon Primer, as simple and elegant as the Forrest-related primers, 
seems more challenging. What would your outline be?

What's the motivation for the new doc? A better user experience?

Why do you think this doc needs to reside/incubate on Wiki? My 
understanding is the Wiki is strongest at generating *new* content not 
necessarily editing existing content (particularly content that's not 
wide-ranging in scope).  Isn't the primer effort more a matter of 
editing or repurposing what we already have? I just think that so much 
can be to improve existing docs by restructuring (filling in holes, 
rearranging, etc.) You wouldn't be starting from scratch, would you?

I'm not against your effort, but I'd like to know more...
