Well, are the modifications specific to your own needs or will they help
everyone?

If the latter, please just send a patch and we'll get it committed.

If the former and you don't want to contribute these mods then ...

Yeah, I think as Ross has mentioned, you should rename the plugin, make sure
it is positioned in a path that is mentioned in the
project.required.plugins.src.

When cleaning out plugins, sometimes it is necessary to to a 'build clean' ,
'build' in the $forrest_home/main directory, as well as a 'forrest clean'
from your $project_home dir.
