Don't touch the Forrest core files (unless you feel your modification 
would be useful to a wider audience).

If you don't like the location Forrest wants to put scripts then simply 
write a match in your project sitemap to intercept this request. 
Something like:

<map:match pattern="dues.js">
   <map:read src="{project:content}/foo/bar/dues.js" .../>
