The site is a mix of JSP and bash scripts.  Part
of my intention with starting the Forrestbot rewrite was to eliminate as
much of the custom bash scripting as possible, to make the Forrestbot
something cross-platform and generally useful for keeping any Forrest
site up to date.

If the bash scripting can be removed, what then remains (the JSPs) is
hardly worth preserving.  So I'd suggest ignoring most of this historical
baggage and starting from scratch (the fifo trick might be worth
preserving though).

Once it works to the extent does, give Steven a
poke ;)
