Yup, seems highly likely. It also means that if Forrest barfs on a certain
page we still get access to the other pages.

Cool. So I assume we simply copy (sync) the xdocs into the 'log' directory,
and not run forrest & copy(sync) outputs. It is a shame that each run will
generate new xdocs, even though the real content may not change, but that
doesn't seem too painful.
