[Swoop] NCI Investigations

So, we did some experiments and determined that parsing is definitely
not a problem. Indeed, the OWL API is damn fast at parsing. Yay.
We believe that the problem, or at least the current problem, is the
RDFS reasoner. Which, we estimate, might require >900 megs for NCI :)
We think there's a simple fix (essentially moving from Arrays to
Bitsets) that will reduce the requirements to closer to 60megs.
For a variety of reasons you might want to adjust the memory given to
Swoop. You can edit the readme.bat to tweak that (the first parameter,
stack, doesn't seem to affect anything).
I hope we can do the switch over today, so we might have a version that
will handle NCI.
