Good point - I went through the basic forrest tutorial, but I'd like to create a how-to for
the 2
ways of creating a site by starting with a blank site.xml (or a realy stripped down version).

>From what I understand so far - there are 2 ways to create a site (well - 2 basic ways):
(1)
create a huge site.xml for your whole site or (2) create separate directory with .xml files
representing various part of the site (like the site generated by seed).
