I should've remembered that :-)

"forrest" is really just a shell script around ant, and so some people 
may invoke the capabilities of forrest from their existing ant 
buildfile, which they likely will call by using 'ant', not 'forrest'. 
Nonetheless, those users can manually set FORREST_HOME if necessary.
