As I don't know yet forrest, could you give a short summary what we will gain by
moving to forrest (and what we might lose)?
I'm not against changing to forrest, but I'd like to know why we should do so...
For what I've seen from forrest sites so far, some things look very nice, but it
seems to have some (serious?) layout problems too.
How stable/complete is it and how difficult is it to use and to get it "right"?

Refactoring itself is very easy to do these days. But redefining packaging
shouldn't be taken too lightly. In my experience, finding a good or even "best" package naming
and structure is one of the hardest thing in coding and usually subject to personal taste
as well.
