Thanks so much for your great work Jeff, and pats on our backs
for the rest of us.

As a test of the current stuff (and because it is time) i used
Forrest to generate an xml-commons website ...

I did have a couple of minor troubles:

1) If i build it using 'forrest site' and then subsequently
tweak the project skinconf.xml, then the changes to skinconf
have no effect. The only way seems to be doing 'build dist'
in the xml-forrest. Then 'forrest site' is happy.

2) There is no "clean" target. So if i have xdocs in my
project that i later delete, then the old rendered *.html|pdf
must be manually removed from /build/site/

Other than that, everything was easy.
