Hi Jim,

This is how I run this script:
IronPython 1.0.60712 (Beta) on .NET 2.0.50727.42 (this is Beta 9)
Intel celeron 2.0 - WinXP Professional
512 Mb RAM

First pass:         30.7604572648
Second pass:    29.9800466260

On the same machine with Cpython 2.4.2:

First pass:        2.46591424329

Now with IronPython 1.0.60725 on .NET 2.0.50727.42 (RC 1):

First pass:        7.52073545660
Second pass:    7.98481566791

So I see that Beta 9 was up to 12x slower, while the latest version is only 3x slower.
Great speedup!

Congratulations for the great job you and your team are doing (and thank you!)
