That's 250 msec. Your version runs in about 350 msec.
Since I can't imagine you're running a machine 50 times slower than
mine, there's something seriously weird going on ...
BTW, I still don't quite get why append has to be so much slower than
insert tail. Does anyone have any ideas wrt/ that issue?
