"build clean" blows away the entire 'build' directory.  If you have run forrest
on itself, the forrest site in 'build/site' will be deleted too.  That's the
only case I can think of.

+1 to change default to clean.  It's simple safeguard against very weird errors.
 I can implement "build no-clean" if there is demand for it.
