Can't deploy a localized application due to 3000 files limit

I've just tried to deploy an application of mine translated into just
4 languages and went over the 3000 files limit.

Most of the files are the permutations generated by GWT compiler so
jarring the Java class files won't help much.

Zipping the static files is a hassle and will likely hurt the
performance badly.

Is there a natural solution to this?

Kind regards,

If you've got a lot of static files you can host them elsewhere, on a
CDN like Amazon S3 for example. It's a good practice anyway...

There are not regular static files. They are generated and re-
generated by GWT compiler.

Every time I hear Google talking about GAE and GWT they position the
products as a seamless and efficient developer-friendly solution.

Having to host the auto-generated code some place else is an awkward
hack that runs counter to Google's official marketing pitch. I'd
rather prefer them to do what they say and provide a natural solution
to the problem.

Kind regards,
