That would be very convenient indeed.

I am preparing a catalogue of Arabic manuscripts for a large library. I
do the initial editing in small batches but later everything is merged
together in one file, whose size is currently approaching 1MB (i.e. 850
000 UTF-8 characters). About 20% of its content is in Arabic.
I have modified the oxygen.sh script to start Oxygen with -Xmx512m (i.e.
twice as much memory as the default), and on my Linux machine everything
is running very smoothly up to now. If you want I can do some testing
with large bidi documents once you have "unlocked" the BIDI limit.
