That was way too hurried. Reading again what I wrote, I can see why it
didn't make sense. I was trying to say too many things at once.

The details left out of the first part: when a use case for Forrest
comes up, it's easier for me to hack something together and just get
it done than it is to get something set up in Forrest. I'm out of
practice, yes, but I get stuck thinking about a lighter, more focused
core instead of working through the use case. The core of Forrest is
extremely light; I mean the Cocoon base here. I hope to work on some
concepts in the proposed experimental space.

All I meant in the second part is that the needs of my current project
fall beyond the scope of Forrest, even in dynamic mode.
