One of the big selling points of Forrest is that it is not tied to a 
specific webserver:

- Based on Java, Forrest is platform-independent, making for a 
documentation system that is just as portable as the XML data it 
processes.  (Forrest homepage)

Although this is an Apache project, that does not mean that we should 
tie it to HTTPd just because it too is an Apache project.  As the rest 
of this thread shows (you did read it before starting to bitch about 
lack of HTTPd integration,  didn't you?), there are other avenues to 
explore in order to solve this problem.
