    What underutilized lacky has enough time to worry about making a program that runs in 283 seconds BUT TAKES 5 MINUTES TO WRITE into a program that runs in 137 seconds BUT TAKES 15-30 minutes to write. If the program could be rewritten so that it runs under 10 seconds (my attention span), THEN the extra effort *might* be worth it. This program is likely to be run from a batch job so that a hyoo-mon isn't likely to be at the terminal waiting for it to finish.

    Java cuts into my beer-drinking time.
