Aren't we overgeneralizing here? 'They', 'our users',... or just the few

I like the shbat approach - just like I like the ability to install Ant 
as a separate app instead of just using the jars.

We should come up with a lean & mean executable version of Forrest, 
depending on Ant already being installed. If what remains of Centipede 
inside Forrest can't support this, we have some cleanup to do.

And if we want to provide a live webapp version for local development, 
and Tomcat isn't lightweight enough to embed inside Forrest, why not use
