I think so.. with some suggestions:

 - We mention the problem in the announcement email as part of the
   "Forrest is still kinda dodgy" disclaimer, and ask for people's help.
 - We add a WARNING_WINDOWS_USERS.txt file to the project root and
   download directory, pointing them to the release notes, which will
   describe the problem.
 - Soon as we find and fix the problem, we release a 0.2.1.  Ie, we
   should have a FORREST_02_BRANCH in CVS where 0.2 bugfixes go.

If we convey the facts properly, the only Windows users downloading
Forrest 0.2 will be those with cygwin or willing to help fix any
problems.  As Stefan says, ant.bat works on W2K and XP
