I think we should try to set up this meta information so that it will always
appear unless it is overridden in the skin configuration or by a change in
the skin.  Perhaps in the skinconf we could have elements like
disable-generator meta information (perhaps some information cannot be
disable this way, like the Forrest version number).

I think most people will not care that this meta-information is embedded in
the web pages.  Thus, an alternative way to disable this information is to
have an insert-generator-meta-data xslt template that skin authors/hackers
could easily override (by defining their own) in their own site2html.xsl

Also, we/I should researching putting Forrest generation meta-data into the
PDF documents.
