I always was wondering why filling large lookup tables is done by static 
java code in the class. Wouldn't it be more clever, to load the lookup 
table content from a binary resource file? Then we must not bother to 
initialize tables by static fake strings to save bytecode footprint.
The same thoughts would apply to the charset mappings in sun.nio.charset
