Sorry to confuse... I had just never seen nor used the command `forrest
-Dproject.start-uri=myfile.html` before. I don't know what it's for.
Having seen it, it *looks* like it is a way to process a single file
(although it ay be more like begin a file number 15, and skip 1-14 or some
such--I don't know what it's for, so I tend to make up what I think it's
for... I tried to rtfm but couldn't find anything...).

I guess my main question is:

What does `forrest -Dproject.start-uri=myfile.html` do?

But that got me to think, "Wouldn't it be nice if forrest could process a
single changed file?

Hope that clear it up!
