I tried to compile a python file using the following options:
jythonc --deep --jar new.jar new.py
After cranking away for several minutes, it terminated with an "out of memory" message, and suggested increasing the heap size with the "-mx" option.  I then tried:
jythonc -J-mx1000000 --deep --jar new.jar new.py
And got the same error.  I then tried  50M instead of 1M for the heap size and still go an "out of memory" error.  new.py pulls in the Jython XML package structure, and the memory error always occurs right after "processing codecs".  Anybody know what I might be able to do about this?
