Hey Simone,

You can also edit the jmc.ini file to add or remove options that would
be used when running 'jmc'.

Or, this can be patched in source file so the jmc.ini that is
generated on build has the arguments you'd prefer. The source should
be: application/org.openjdk.jmc.rcp.product/jmc.product
