We are still working on the development of Forrest to
not copy files needlessly into temporary build directories.
We are also fixing the way forrest builds and runs itself
so that logfiles and temporary files go into the project
build directory.

So we are already addressing multi-user requirements.

In fact this is one of the main reasons that we have
not yet released our 0.6 version.
