I don't how much of it is the GUI bits (which presumably Emacs wouldn't
use), but the normal Eclipse app is _extremely_ slow just to start, even
before you load a project.

Of course it _also_ consumes vast amounts of memory, which make having a
persistent process around a bit less inviting ... :-(


Dictionary, n.  A malevolent literary device for cramping the growth of
a language and making it hard and inelastic. This dictionary, however,
is a most useful work.
