As more and more functionality gets moved into plugins proper this will 
become a possability. If someone were to create such a "mini-forrest" we 
could use this as a starting point for the fully plugin-ised Forrest. 
Basically we could have a branch for this mimi-forrest and as we move 
plugins out of core into plugins in that branch.

We would start with the essential internals of Forrest in mini-forrest, 
then gradually build it back up again until mini-forrest + plugins can 
do everything trunk forrest can do.

I'd be +1 with assisting with this work, although my baby is due any day 
so expect me to slow down soon.
