List<int> mylist = new List<int>();
for (int i=0; i<10000000; i++)

You can use AddRange, C# 2.0 anonymous delegates, IEnumerable, yield, 
foreach, and so forth instead, but for your example this is simplest.

Another option is to use boo.  http://boo.codehaus.org/
It uses python's syntax but is as fast as C#.  The only change you'd
have to make in that code is to capitalize the Extend method call.
