Unfortunately I'm not one of the few poor "giza"(s) using Eclipse, so, 
got no clue of what you're talking about... :-P

Anyhow, I split up the block... The big-big OOME-generating part are 
the charsets, and I've simply factored them out into an ignorable 
subdirectory, with its own build file, generating a JAR which gets 
copied at compile time...

Also, to generate the charsets you mostly need J2SDK 1.4, so, it might 
have broken some other stuff... blablabla... Putting all into a JAR 
solves the problem AFAICS...

Can the Eclipsers give it a shot?


PS. "GIZA" comes from Jeremy... Spending too much time w/ that guy 
lately! :-P
