This is an interesting question and one that has come up a few times. 
There is no definitive answer since each dev has their own view on the 
*future* target user.

I think we are all in agreement that the *current* target user is a 
fairly tech savvy beast.

Personally, I see Forrest being at the core of a set of tools for end 
users who are computer literate, but little more. We have some work in 
this direction (and Eclipse based application for example). However, 
these are a long way from being usable by non technical end users.
