I've spent some time looking at the forrest project website, mail archives and
svn commit logs. I think what it comes down to is what we want here for the
incubator is a "stable", or preferably "mature" tool, and forrest really is
currently too much of a moving target (more deserving of an "alpha" or "beta"
qualifier). Heck, it says so on the front page of their website. There is
nothing wrong with that and it has little to do with "reputation", just with
expectations which aren't very well-aligned with the "development mode". I'm not
going to be "happy" until I have a site generation tool I can basically "forget
about". The forrest front page says

  "Please realise that Forrest is still pre-1.0 release version. It is certainly
   usable for those who are prepared to move with it."

and I think we don't want a moving target.

I suggest the incubator moves to something else, and then when forrest hits
1.0 (or 1.1) we can re-evaluate.
