Sylvain concerning the pyro dependency, I agree it should be discarded
in the base CW install : I have been writting CW applications for
several years at SecondWeb and just *never* used pyro, even on very
large systems like on http://www.118000.fr.

Dr Leo, if you intend to develop applications with CW, I think you
should consider using hg repos even without using the forest : using
simple scripts it is not that difficult to manage all the repos (I did
for a while, being stuck with a pretty old linux box).
