Absolutely, now I have read what they are wonder why I didn't know about 
them before.

The only requried information in the sitemap is the URL. This means we 
can create the Google sitemap now, with minimal effort. Over time we can 
enhance this by adding further meta-data once it becomes available.

The submitting of the sitemap should not be a part of Forrest itself. 
Although the Forrestbot would benefit from being able to submit it.

+1 for creating a Google sitemap, I guess the easiest method will be to 
adapt the existing linkmap.html file.
