Actually if you really only want to use forrest to prepare the import I
strongly recommend to use lenya directly. I do not see any benefit from
porting first to forrest. Sadly we do not yet have accomplished an easy
integration process from forrest2lenya which would justify this step.

Later on you can use the lenya-plugin of the whiteboard to get the
content and render it with forrest, because that is the part that lenya
should/could use from forrest.
