Of course.

The file will become big, and since Forrest users will start to use it 
also, I just reckoned that having a tool to aid them would make it more 
appealing; but it's not the point, the point of course is the file itself.

These are two aspects of project management, my proposal just aims to 
make the "internal" management more solid.
The contract with the user is the other very important aspect, and has 
also to be taken into account.
