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.
