Thanks, it also happens to be a (not necessarily the) fix for getting trunk
working again for Windows Devs. We need to look a bit higher up in the chain
as to what makes this work and if we can find a solution without having to
have this fallback permanently in all plugins, current and future.

I don't know why, I just have the niggling feeling that because it works
without this fix for Linux/MAC then applying the above fix for Windows feels
to me like a hack.

However, if the above fix is useful in general for making reusable resources
available by default then it doesn't feel so bad. Combine that with talk of
future and markably different direction(s) for Forrest as a whole then it
might just be acceptable.

I will spend some more time tomorrow delving a bit deeper and see what I can
find as a better solution if there is one, any hints as to where to look
would be great. If I or someone else doesn't come up with one soon, then as
I've mentioned before, I'll commit what I've got.

If any other Windows Devs are able to confirm trunk also works for them with
these fixes that would be good also, and if there are any objections ...
