Mac OS X: Setting file.encoding to utf8 in Info.plist

I have noticed that adding

file.encoding UTF8]]>

to Info.plist improved idea startup a lot, especially scanning .jar files will be much faster. Is there anything which prevents the use of this setting as default for MAC OS X?

Where do you add this? In the | or in ||Java]]>?

Whoever it was at Apple that came up with the Info.plist format didn't know XML very well. Then again at the time I probably didn't know much about XML either. It must be my day to rant on Apple. I just got done complaining about Mail.app and it's attachment problems.

It is a java property (-Dfoo=bar), so put it below
Properties ... ]]>
