"hooray" (on W2K)

Can anyone describe me the clear state of lightheadedness MS developers 
had when implementing this command shell interpreter? Maybe this development team is located somewhere in Elbonia?

Does work under

When running under cygwin however, 'forrest seed' in a new directory 

stevenn@ELISABETH ~/test
$ forrest
Apache Forrest.  Run 'forrest -projecthelp' to list options

Buildfile: \c\Program 
Files\apache-forrest-0.2-bin\bin\..\ does not exist!
Build failed

I'm upgrading my cygwin version right now and report back. But to me, it 
seems we can safely release on the 'common' platforms - cygwin not being 
one of them.
