Whilst this is a good reason, I am hoping that I can develop the plugin 
functionality to a level that there will never be a need for any project 
to diverge their code base in this way. It will be better for both 
Forrest and the other projects.

(NB I'm working at porting the WYSIWYG editor next - but I'll sort out 
these other issues with plugins first)
