I'm working on forrestbot now, trying to get a regression testing suite
up.  A while back I rewrote most of to delegate to targets.  There is some minor hacking still to be done,
but it mostly works.  See src/resources/forrestbot/samples

I'm currently tinkering with the mail support.  It also works, except
requires activation.jar and JavaMail stuff to work.  I have no idea if
Apache is allowed to distribute these jars.  Due to the following license
clause, I suspect not:

  "you [Apache] agree to defend and indemnify Sun and its licensors from
  and against any damages, costs, liabilities, settlement amounts and/or
  expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with any
  claim, lawsuit or action by any third party that arises or results from
  the use or distribution of any and all Programs and/or Software."

But then, JAMES distributes it so.. :|
