GradleBuilder.js has hardcoded memory parameter

    Description

      Ionic users reported having problem with the Android build process when they have biiiig projects with the error message "> Java heap space" for a long time. Recent example:
      https://forum.ionicframework.com/t/packagedebug-error-java-heap-space-with-large-sqlite-db/82997

      Fortunately now one user decided to jump in deep enough to figure out the problem: https://forum.ionicframework.com/t/packagedebug-error-java-heap-space-with-large-sqlite-db/82997/6

      Seems like GradeBuilder.js hardcodes a memory parameter so that it is impossible to change the supplied memory any other way.

      I think I found the code in `cordova-lib`:
      https://github.com/apache/cordova-lib/blob/cef2959c8843074e94448f4bfc7812d0e4748131/spec-plugman/projects/android/cordova/lib/builders/GradleBuilder.js#L59

      It would be great if users could somehow change that value to be bigger that didn't include having to edit this file (re-adding the platform will lose these changes for example).
