So how about renaming the command line options as follows
(alternatives in order of decreasing preference)

        rename          to be

        forrest site => forrest mksite
                        forrest static
                        forrest makestatic

        forrest run  => forrest serve
                        forrest server
                        forrest dynamic

Renaming the 'build' directory is difficult because of it's mixed use,
but I'd still suggest naming it 'output' to avoid confusion with the
software build and because this is much easier for non programmers to

Even better would be to split build into the functional units, move
its three sub directories up and name them

        'tmp' (as before),
        'staticsite' (instead of 'site') and
        'serverworkspace' (instead of 'webapp').
