For our own projects, we build a *.tar.gz dist on a Linux machine, and 
the *.zip alternative on a Windows machine. That should be the safest 
and easiest. And since making a dist for Forrest is peanuts (compared 
with Cocoon), I would go for this scheme.

There's be other platform particularities as well, like the situation 
with tar vs gnutar on Mac OS X, or WinZip making a faulty extraction of 
a tgz archive... IMHO, it's still better to build a dist for a specific 
destination on that destination platform.
