[antlr-interest] Big grammar => static initializer/method size is exceeding the 65535 bytes limit

I think that the issue is more likely something to do with your lexer specification. You should not need to worry about having lots of keywords, so one of the other rules must be causing the huge expansion. For instance I have problems with the complete lexer for TSQL, which has more keywords than you can shake a stick at.
Did you ever post your complete lexer spec? I was out of the country when you first started this thread.
