I agree, subrepos are nice for the development model they support, but a pain otherwise.
Forest were such a useful feature, sad they are depreciated in favour of the subrepos... however, you could still work with partial forest, the problem is that you have to remember to update the parent forest if you want changes to be propagated correctly.
The script does the right thing though, so I guess there us no real reason to get back :)

Oggetto: Forest Extension - Not to be found?

Trust me it has been discussed.
The subrepos extension has it's problems, primarily it doesn't allow us to work with
partial forests or displace nested repos, and makes like difficult with open&closed
situations. Various proposals have been suggested, but it always seems like we are
twisting ourselves into a pretzel to use it.
