I had a few problems with compiler limits in this area in Saxon too, though
my approach is a bit different. I ended up creating a source module
containing the raw data in which the lists of integers are represented as
strings containing comma-separated base-32 values; I then parse the strings
out into the run-time tables needed to drive the algorithm. Don't ask me why
it wasn't base-64, I'm sure it made sense at the time.

Could this have been because the Character.MAX_RADIX constant,
used by the String.toString(int i, int radix) method, has a value of 36?
