For the Eclipse plugin I need to change the way we are starting Forrest 
as I need to be able to cleanly shutdown Jetty from an Eclipse action. I 
am experimenting with different options at the moment, but how does this

"forrest run" - starts the server using the jetty start.jar
"forrest stop" - stops the server using the jetty stop.jar
