Hmmmm. Sounds tempting. Or should we provide just the scripts so that 
people are able to deploy/update a Forrest instance running in their own 
TC installation?

Packaging TC seems like adding lots of weight to the distribution, IMO. 
But abondoning static for live, and creating static using wget sounds 
very tempting to me these days.

Sorry for the very belated reply. I've been pretty busy.
