It sounded too large for me, but, possible if you have some plugins
I don't use, or some files are loaded on startup.

I think it is not relevant to set "-Xms" by default, because the actual
heap size is so different among users, and the heap automatically glows

I think Windows installation could be better by bundling a native
jedit.exe created by Launch4j. It has configured to use a separated
.ini file to specify the JVM options.
It is working fine on my local. This also makes Windows file type
association far easier. I'll make an actual patch to make this, probably
after the release of 4.3pre16. It might be in 4.3pre16, with some luck.
