I totally agree.

Yes. As you know I am concerned about diverting attention from Forrest 
1. Personally I have outgrown Forrest1 and need a leaner, meaner version 
(as explained in my original RT). However, that doesn't mean Forrest 1 
should die, only that my *personal* interest in it is waning.

I believe that my work on Forrest2 will, in the long term, be of 
interest to the wider community. But first individual community members 
will have to outgrow Forrest1 as I have or Forrest2 will have to be a 
suitable drop in replacement for Forrest1. The latter is a very long way 
away at present, but I'm working on it.

Any assistance I get along the way is great, in the meantime I am 
scratching my own itches.

Well you don't edit class files, you edit .java files. But I guess that 
is what you meant.

For basic work like this I recommend JEdit. Even better, IMHO, is EMacs, 
there is a gui version called XEmacs, but I don't have experience of it 
(others would recomend Vi).
