acorn sure fills a gap today, and as such should be in
there.  (there is some possible confusion with the
forrestbot: the current advocated way, but documentation and
a future better design of the build should solve that)

acorn however is not (IMHO) sufficiently making the real
separation (as discussed) we need, so having this should not
take attention away from still making the build-redesign
that offers that.

acorn would still deserve a future inside forrest (IMHO
again) 1. it could evolve into some easy-install mechanism
for forrest. 2. the build-template idea should inspire one
of the real things forrest can do for you (next to building
your docs)

just my 2c.
