On a 1ghz powerbook I ran a check on a list with something like
30,000 entries, all 7 characters long, with no dupes in the list.
I ran the de-dupe routine 100 times in roughly 400 ticks for the
repeat for each version, 700 ticks for the split version.
Obviously that's 4 ticks for one iteration vs. 7, so we're not
talking the end of civilization here.
