Forrest 0.6 does not support turning off collapsible menus -- I included 
the post to the forrest user list at the end of this post that verified 
it isn't supported (and that mentioned we can patch the skin to do what 
we want).

So one option would be for somebody patch the forrest skin to what we 
want. I don't have time/skills to do this. If anyone out there is 
interested in doing this, please post! :-)

Another option would be to move the categories we want to always be 
expanded out into separate tabs. Kevin Foster posted this suggestion to 
derby-user@db.apache.org yesterday:

This second option is within my skills and I'll do up a test that shows 
what this would look like for review (i.e., without changing the Derby 
site itself).

Any other options/suggestions/opinions?
