Actually you should go back more, rather than seen the latest progress ;-)

Forrest's initial vision was to be a sort of a project portal, not 
simply site generation like Anakia (remember the comments about a better 
SF?). The CLI mode of operation was deemed to be a necessary 
intermediate step. We still have a long way to go, but IMHO the concrete 
project plans we have in JIRA about 0.7 and 0.8 lay the foundation for 
starting to add features to Forrest.
