Wow, didn't knew about this Forrest plugin. AFAICS it seems to have some 
common roots with Burrokeet (

IMO, Apache is not the right place for an IDE as Apache focuses on 
server and infrastructure software. Furthermore, the Lepido's goals go 
very far in the IDE features, and therefore require different skills 
than those needed to develop the server-side framework. That's what led 
us to propose this project to the Eclipse folks.
