/* This is a benchmarking template I use in LINQPad when I want to do a
* quick performance test. Just give it a couple of actions to test and
* it will give you a pretty good idea of how long they take compared
* to one another. It's not perfect: You can expect a 3% error margin
* under ideal circumstances. But if you're not going to improve
* performance by more than 3%, you probably don't care anyway.*/
