Oh blah!  I knew something was up here...  I totally messed up my
ticks conversion to ms.  A tick is 100ns, so it should be divide by
10k, not 1m.

New stat:  IP = ~5.5 seconds.  Boo = ~450ms.  C# = ~1.15s.

I added a modulo print of i every 1m in the Boo loop to make sure it
was doing the work.  And the end result of j is printed, so hopefully
it's doing something other than optimizing the loop out completely.
