In the method nu.xom.UnicodeUtil.decompose(..) (Xom 1.2b) there is a
1900ish-levels nested if-else statement that causes my Eclipse java editor
to crash when opening the file. Yes, I know it's not a XOM-fault, but I
thought I'd throw it on the list anyway...

This has been a known bug in Eclipse for a while and I've reported it before:

As a quick sidenote, the decompose method can be very easily refactored into
(IMO) a much cleaner switch() statement rather than the overly long if-else
statements (I have no idea if this also has performance improvements?)...
That's at least how I stopped my Eclipse from crashing :)

Interesting. My recollection is that that's how this method started. However that failed for other reasons related to maximum method size. It's been a while since I looked at this issue though, so I may be misremembering or something else related may have changed.
