Well as I have said a number of times, my position is do what you need 
to. As a Forrest dev I've learnt what are real issues and what are user 
issues (or our management of users).

For what it is worth I just proposed an enhancement to "forrest run" 
that will solve the remaining workflow issues (with the exception of the 
large initial download).

This will provide a way to write generated content to the local build 
directoy as Geir suggested. It will also provide the ability to fully 
deploy the site from within the browser, either with or without a 
complete site rebuild.

In other words, it will integrate the ForrestBot functionality into the 
validation stage of the workflow without the need to actually install 
the ForrestBot application, just do "forrest run" as you normally do.

I'll be working on this during spare time over the next few days, not 
for the incubator, but because it is a good idea generally. Who knows 
when I'll finish it, soon I hope.

I don't expect this to mean you stay with Forrest, but it would be wrong 
of me to not show we are listening and acting upone the feedack in this
