Configure Intellij memory on OSX

Since Intellij is now a signed application it's no longer recommended to edit Info.plist. So now one should copy the default idea.vmoptions and edit the copy.

`cp /Applications/IntelliJ\ IDEA\ ~/Library/Preferences/IntelliJIdea12/idea.vmoptions`

Edit the copy and restart the IDE.

Note: I believe that the above is only valid for the Ultimate Edition.
