I was thinking that a single instance of Forrest with multiple sites 
would be a more efficient method. Such as configuration would certainly 
make that feature of the plugin easier to build.

I have no problem with that. With the configuration system changing I 
would have to redo some of the features I would be writing anyway. I 
would rather get the configuration right first.

I am listening to the config audio and trying to document as much as I 
can. I'll have to save up so that I can come to the next hackathon :)
