Me too, exactly.  I started to download the JDK and balked at the size / 
amount of disk space required.  I would like to try Eclipse, which seems 
to only need a JRE.  Will I be able to build Forrest with Eclipse+JRE if 
I don't install the JDK?  How soon will pre-built distributions of 0.7 
be available?
