Hmm ... the Oxford English Dictionary defines "forensic" as "pertaining
to, connected with, or used in courts of law".  There are also some
senses related to argumentation, but nothing specifically about evidence
analysis, whether after-the-fact or not.  So yeah, it doesn't seem like
a good name for these functions anyhow.
