Maybe ... I think that most likely the main problem is using stringWithFormat:
That method is slow for a variety of reasons (it's probably faster now than when the smalltalk test was done),
not least the fact that it uses the autorelease mechanism. Autorelease is fundamentally pretty slow, and a
good garbage collection system would perform better. However, retain/release/autorelease is the way
things are currently done.
