There used to be a splitter crosby_integration (sp?) branch r161 that 
did not package all the required .jar files. Steve prepared two or three 
builds of that. The code was later merged to 
http://svn.mkgmap.org.uk/splitter/trunk with all the required library 
.jar files. The current revision is r170, which I am using.

The osm.pbf is not only about file size, but also about processing speed 
and possibly memory usage.
