It would have to be done, but it's quite easy, as I've done a similar 
thing some time back, and I do it with Centipede. If you can give me a 
hand, we can have it done in short order.

I reckon (please correct me if I'm wrong), that the use-case would be 
that a user writes the documentation as normal Forrest docs (using 
xdoc11, html or wiki syntax), and want the generated docs to be included 
in the site.

- Is there an intermediate format for them or are they transformed to 
the final output already?
- where are they put after generation? (dir layout)

If it's possible to generate them without the navigation bars, the 
easiest thing is to make them output to *.ihtml and include them in the 
source file dir layout. They will be picked up by Forrest and rendered.
The only thing left is to add them to the navigation, and add a book for 
them. But we'll do that later.
