Now that I've read Ross' answer to Gav's questions about
contributing ... what about making a simple 'forrest'
become more interactive? Right now it builds forrest (huh?)
and displays the "run forrest -project-help" message.

Somebody typing just 'forrest' does not know how it is
used. She would maybe expect some help or even better:
an interactive guide to getting started with forrest.

What do others think?
