There is very little variation (about 0.1%) but my solution is over an
order of magnitude slower than some of the submissions that I've gotten.
It is likely that the overhead of my timing code is significant when
running your solution.
I may have to *slightly* revise my test code to get better results. I
think that I can do so without changing the distribution of the random
schedule so as not to be biased against some solutions.
