Don't know about other IDEs but AFAIR even Eclipse can perform better in this area when special

Maven plug-in for Eclipse is used. It's called q4e[1] but the last time I checked it had one

annoying problem: performed really slow when such big projects like Cocoon were handled by
plug-in. Don't know how it's now.

Speaking about myself, I don't change these files too often and always has been using external
(Krusader on openSUSE) to deal with these files.

I think the best option is to revert these changes and discuss possible options first. I guess
folks working with trunk may have their build broken as well.

Hmmmm... I thought that recent releases of Maven does not need messing with MAVEN_OPTS. Am
I wrong?
