Yes, it's a limitation of the Cocoon command-line.  Though, even if it were fixed, and only
the edited files rendered, Forrest would *still* be slower than most comparable systems, as
Cocoon imposes a large runtime overhead.

So the solution we're pursuing is to use a 'live' Cocoon to preview edited changes, and then
only run the command-line when you're finished and want a static snapshot of the site.  This
is described at:

Essentially, you type 'forrest run', then view the site at http://localhost:8888/. Docs must
then be edited in build/webapp/content/xdocs, and copied back to src/documentation/content/xdocs
eventually (we aim to remove this step though). Doing this, you get to see changes rendered
far faster than any command-line system could.

I'll leave this bug open, as a reminder that the Cocoon CLI could do with this optimization.

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: FOR-14
    Summary: Dependencies not granular
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Critical

    Project: Forrest
  Component: Core operations

When I change one word in the file src\documentation\content\xdocs\index.xml
and then type "forrest", all files in fst\build\site get rebuilt.
This is very inefficient and time-consuming - it doesn't scale! I guess as long as the true
functionality of ant in this respect isn't used, no big/serious website will use forrest.
