It should be able to be independent of other things,
as far as i can tell.

I presume that it should be possible to take this
in small steps:
Get a basic Ivy setup working, perhaps only managing
one or two artifacts.
Get the build and run to use most libs from the
$FORREST_HOME/lib/* and the others from Ivy.
Gradually move stuff to be managed by Ivy.

Is that possible? If so then i reckon that we should
get going in trunk.
