Meh. I question the validity of a programming language shootout where
everyone's just optimising their code to the hilt, though. The
ability of a language to support *highly manually optimised code* is,
I think, a questionable measurement of its worth, although it would
be interesting to conduct a benchmark where lots of programmers
submit their own implementations of an algorithm, *along with how
many hours it took them to do and how many months of experience they
had with that language*, and the gradients of the resulting best-fit
lines be compared instead of any absolute value :-)

the only actually clever bit in this code, for what its worth, is that i discovered/created an algorithm that creates a full permutation set with only
one swap per permutation.  that was from several weeks (earlier this year)
playing with combinatorics.
