Where does eclipse hide its default launch configuration ?

P: n/a
I'm bouncing off of "out-of-memory" errors using current release of eclipse.

OK, so I've ferreted around and found that I have to pass special arguments
to the JVM to get it to use more that a 64Mb heap.

I poked around to discover that this pokes a line into a .launch file, which
for my case, is shown below.

<stringAttribute key="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.VM_ARGUMENTS"
value="-Xms512m -Xmx1536m"/>

It would have to be completely nuts to have to make this change every time I
launch a new app, so there must be a default configuration somewhere that
the IDE is using to create these .launch files from. I've spent the last
(frustrating) hour or so digging through the help and web to no avail.

Can anyone advise me on how to set the default launch parameters such that
they are applied to all new launches.
