I'm not entirely sure about this, but I think for range(), the entire
range of numbers is generated at one go, which could cause a
slow-down. But xrange() generates the list of numbers one at a time.
For a thousand, there shouldn't be much of a difference, but if you
need a million or so go with xrange()
