Yes, sorry about that. We are focused on correctness first, then we will go
and trim down in subsequent 2.7.x releases, where x > 0. A huge chunk of
that additional bloat is supporting unicodedata and the corresponding ICU4J
jar we now use.
It should be a straightforward matter of programming to remove this ICU4J
dependency. Possibly this and other optimizations, especially startup time,
would be suitable for a Google Summer of Code student, given that we are
planning to participate this summer.
