Good idea, but call it Dispatcher.

This could link in with the main Glossary. Or perhaps
the new Glossary plugin be able to restrict output to
certain topics.

We always start to invent new tools when we talk about
documentation. That Glossary plugin sounds easy, Ross has
added the resources but not built a plugin. So if you feel
up to following the Howto-buildPlugin then try that.
It would teach you heaps about Forrest.

However, it would be be fine to just start with a simple
manual document for now and we can extract that info later.

It needs a complete cleanup. We need to rationalise
the current documentation and remove the old documentation
completely. When we release 0.8 then we will only have
one implementation of Dispatcher, i.e. current development.

So the old v1 and "views" documentation will go away.

I reckon move the documentation into docs_0_80
and some of it could move out of the howto into
normal docs.
