   That was a big surprise for me as well. I originally used 1.1.6 since
   1.2.1 in my experience tends to be slower. It's even more surprising
   since this is with the Classic(non-hotspot) VM. It looks like 1.2 is
   a mixed bag on speed -- it's definitely slower for GUI stuff, but 
   for some numerics it looks pretty reasonable.

   My guess here is that MSVC without optimizations isn't particularly
   tweaked. I just did a quick test with MSVC at -O2 and it was right
   around .3 seconds.
