Ah, this has broken things somewhat.  Two problems:

1) Using *only* the command-line param doesn't work.  Forrest's cli.xconf
does not have a <dest-dir> entry, and instead relies on the --destDir
param being passed in from the command-line.  Because of this I get:

ERROR: You must specify a destination directory when defining a target

2) The first file to be rendered ends up in the <dest-dir> directory, not
the overriding --destDir directory.  If the cli.xconf has:


At the end of the render, /tmp/wrong/ contains one file:

drwxr-xr-x    2 jeff     jeff         1024 Sep 27 18:00 .
drwxrwxrwt    9 root     root        14336 Sep 27 18:00 ..
-rw-r--r--    1 jeff     jeff          766 Sep 27 18:00 favicon.ico

favicon.ico happens to be the first to get rendered.  All the other files
(excluding favicon.ico) end up in the --destDir directory.
