Good, That sounds interesting. I don't suppose you could add a sample
xdoc with the relevant metadata included to the Jira issue. BTW, that
site of yours looks pretty good.

I think it's a discussion well worth having. I suspect that it would
be better, or more likely to succeed at any rate, to concentrate on
developing useful applications for Forrest than getting too bogged
down with semantics. Forrest can be a slippery fish when it comes down
to defining exactly what it does. Maybe we should be running a list of
possible use cases in the docs and trying to gauge what users actually
want most. Personally good html site generation is a priority, but
maybe Forrest's forte is something a bit less mainstream.
