I actually stopped using the forest extension a while back and so it
took me a while to even notice it was broken when I upgraded to 1.6.

Something like:

for dirs in . corba jaxp jaxws langtools hotspot jdk
  hg -R $1/$dirs $COMMAND

will do the same job for OpenJDK and be a lot quicker than the forest
