In the past few days I have managed to overcome some serious performance 
bottle necks in Isabelle/jEdit (cf. changes leading up to 03a5ba7213cf 
from Tuesday this week).

This means one can now load full sessions like MicroJava into the Prover 
IDE, even on a two-core machine (say with 4 GB, but it also works with 2 
GB to some extent). Minor omission: I still need to make the crude "Prover 
Session / Theory Status" overview panel more comprehensive.

So maintainance of old theory collections could become eanjoyable again, 
after unlearning some Escape-Meta-Alt-Control-Shift key sequences.
