It seems we have been talking at cross-purposes. I was referring to the 
build directory in the Forrest directory, not in the project directory.
If this isn't a perfect example of a need for clearer names I don't know 
what is :-))

If I understand you correctly you are actually referring to the "build" 
directory in a project. Would you like to restate your proposal for this 
restructuring since I may have taken us way off track.
